Athlete Visit

Today we welcomed Serita Solomon to High Halden.  Serita is a British track and field athlete competing in the hurdles. She was the bronze medallist in the 60 metres hurdles at the European Athletics Indoor Championships in 2015.  Serita holds a personal best of 12.87 seconds for the outdoor 100 metres hurdles and represented England in that event at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.


The children enjoyed participating in a fitness circuit of 'Spotty dogs, leg thrusts, press-ups and star-jumps'. The atmosphere was electric, as their friends cheered and clapped to keep the momentum going. 


After the fitness circuit, Serita told the children about her career and he she achieved her goal of winning a gold medal.
