GB Taekwondo Competitor Romaine Bailey puts pupils through their paces
On Tuesday 22nd March 2016 we were lucky enough to welcome GB Taekwondo Competitor & 5x British Champion Romaine Bailey to Abercorn School to lead a fun, inspirational fitness circuit with the Prep pupils at Portland Place.
Through sponsorship of the children participating, funds raised were donated to Sports for Schools to help fund the event and donate to the star athletes funding for ongoing training expenses and development.
Throughout the morning pupils in Years 4 - 8 were put through their paces by Romaine and Julz Adeniran, a fellow GB & England International Athlete, performing 4 exercises and rotating in a circuit of Push ups, Leg Drives, Spotty Dogs and Star Jumps.
Once all the pupils had completed their exercises Romaine gave an inspiring talk about his commitment to sport and training, and the children had the opportunity to ask questions. Feedback from the pupils was so positive that many now say they are aspiring to become successful young athletes!
