Two Spanish Olympic athletes visit our school

As in previous years, two former Olympic athletes (judo and volleyball) visited our school and talked to our 1st-year CSE students about the Olympics and the Olympic spirit. After a brief historical explanation of the first Olympic Games held in Greece and the Olympic truce, they discussed more recent Games (Berlin, Munich, Moscow, Los Angeles, Barcelona, Sidney and Beijing) and great sportspeople such as Jesse Owens.

The talk was very interesting and some of the videos were also very moving but the two parts our students and teachers enjoyed best were when our Olympic athletes spoke about their personal memories in the Games and when they showed the equipment other sportspeople used in our gym and asked a few of our students to give them a try. We hope you will like the pics at least as much we enjoyed the morning.
