Linden Bridge School

Visiting Olympian

Earlier this week Linden Bridge welcomed Ezekiel Ewulo, an Olympian

L...O...N...G Jumper, for an afternoon.

There was a whole school assembly, attended also by a few parents, during which Ezikiel spoke about his career and many achievements.  This was supplemented with some fantastic visuals.

He gave a demonstration of the build up to a jump and then

the J  U  M  P.

We didn't measure the jump but it was L  O  N  G!!

Staff and pupils were invited up to the front to have a go.  Needless to say no-one could quite match Ezekiel's distance!

Then it was question and answer time, our youngsters did themselves proud with the questions they put to Ezikiel.

Following the assembly all classes had the opportunity of spending 10 minutes with Ezekiel and to go through just a couple of his warm up routines.  As you may well imagine there were some who really gave their all, and others thought, maybe an Olympic medal isn't for me.

The afternoon flew by. Ezekiel was great taking on board the different levels and understanding of our pupils.
