Sport Relief Assembly with Anna Maine.
We were delighted to welcome British Swimmer Anna Maine to school to help us launch our Sport Relief fundraising with an assembly entitled ‘Are you ready to do yourselves proud?’
Anna is just 15 years old and she has won Junior Gold in the 100m Backstroke at the ASA National Winter Meet 2015. She was just 0.04 seconds shy of winning senior bronze after finishing fourth in the open final. Anna broke her own 50m Backstroke British junior record in Toronto in December 2015. She can swim 50m in 27.67seconds. Anna was selected as Olympic Podium Potential by British Swimming in October 2015 and she will hopefully compete in the 2020 Olympic Games.
Anna talked to us about the medals she had won and about the amount of training she has to do. She very kindly donated some of her medals to the school to help motivate children with their learning.
