Olympic Gold comes to St Hugh's

The children enjoyed a very special visit from Olympic Gold Medalist, Kate French, this week. Having won the gold for Team GB in Modern Pentathlon at the Summer Olympics in Tokyo earlier this year, she spent the day with children throughout the school and answered questions as well as explained what it takes to have the dedication and drive needed to be a world-class athlete. She also ran training sessions for the upper school children in two of the five disciplines in which she specialises, namely shooting and running and how breath control and focus is imperative to the pentathlon.
