Shona McCallin, member of the GB Gold medalist hockey team in Rio, visted Bluecoat yesterday as part of her work for Inspire +. Although she addressed the whole school, Y5 were selected to have an extra question and answer session. Shona spoke about how she aspired to achieve gold at an International level from the age of 14 and how she trains tirelessly six days a week to maintain fitness. Year 5 asked some excellent questions including how she feels playing in front of huge crowds and television cameras, to which she responded, "I don't allow myself to think about it anymore. I stay focused on the job I need to do. If I allowed myself to worry about what other people think of me, I wouldn't play my best and I train hard to achieve my goals."
Well done year 5, you represented our school brilliantly!
