‘Rebecca Gallantree – Sponsored Fitness Event’
On Tuesday 7th February we welcomed GB Olympic Diver ‘Rebecca Gallantree’ to the school to complete a sponsored fitness circuit with all pupils.
At the 2008 Beijing, 2012 London and 2016 Rio Olympics, Rebecca competed in the women’s synchronized 3 metre springboard. With Alicia Blagg, she won gold at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in the women’s 3 m synchronised springboard. Then, in 2015, Rebecca partnered up with Tom Daley in the new ‘team event’, where they became World Champions. Most recently, at the 2016 European Championships, Rebecca and Alicia won a silver medal in front of the home crowd, with a British record score
Rebecca led a sponsored fitness circuit with all pupils, and followed-up with a talk, demonstration and question and answer session. The aim of the event is to inspire the pupils to take up sport generally, but just as importantly to encourage them to discover and then pursue their passion in life.
