On Tuesday 28th June, Marilyn Okoro and the Mintridge team visited Havelock Academy in Grimsby to prepare the students for their Summer Cup taking place in Grantham later in the week.
Double Olympian, Okoro worked with a variety of groups on sprint starts, running technique and relays throughout the day across the Year 7 to Year 10 year groups. Medals were awarded to students for their attitudes and technique improvement throughout the day.
Marilyn ended the day presenting to the students her very own sporting journey and the challenges that she has had to overcome in her career: RESILIENCE, SACRIFICE, CONFIDENCE & BELIEF being integral words within her story which she was able to pass onto the students.
