Colin Jackson, the former world champion hurdler and Olympic star, visited the Barnes Wallis Academy last week to deliver an inspirational talk and coaching ‘masterclass’ to students. The Olympic silver medallist - and former world record holder at 60m and 110m hurdles - also launched ‘Sports Hall’, an indoor competition which feature several local primary schools which were put through their paces in front of one of Britain’s best known athletes who is now a successful TV pundit. Students and staff were delighted to welcome Jackson who is the latest in a line of of high-pofile sporting stars to visit the Academy.
