British 100m sprinter Mark Lewis-Francis visited Culford Pre-Prep School last week as part of Sports 4 All UK’s scheme to inspire children to get involved in sport.
Mark spent the morning with more than 100 pupils, aged from three to eight, at assembly, conducting fitness sessions and doing a question and answer session.
Sarah Preston, Culford pre-prep headmistress, said: “Mark Lewis- Francis impressed everyone with his charismatic and energetic personality. The pupils and staff all joined in with the motivational exercises.”
The pupils have a sponsored swim today to raise cash for the school PE department and to help unfunded athletes.
