The initiative titled TDK Rising Stars Clinic, sponsored by the IAAF (International Association of Athletics Federations) and moderated by two-time 110m hurdles world champion and former world record holder Colin Jackson, took place at our school on Monday. GB’s Jake Wightman and Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake, along with South African Dominique Scott and Noah Lyles of the US joined coach Toni Minichiello in running a session.
Students were split into groups, each led by one of the athletes, who then focused on an assortment of training and technical drills.
The morning finished with a relay race. The excitement didn’t stop there as the ultimate prize was handed out shortly after; students that were involved were handed IAAF World Championships tickets!
Well done to everyone that took part!
