OLYMPIC legend Tony Jarrett passed on some of his sporting skills and experience during a free coaching event in Hammersmith.

The former sprint and hurdling athlete, who narrowly missed out on medals in the 1988 Seoul Olympics and 1992 games in Barcelona, teamed up with H&F Council to put on the session last Tuesday (29/6).

Held at Linford Christie Stadium, in Du Kane Road, there were 200 youngsters aged between 12 and 13 from schools across the borough including Wood Lane, Cambridge School, Bridge Academy, Hurlingham & Chelsea School and Henry Compton School.

The Have a Go Day event was part of National School Sports Week with youngsters taking part in sprinting, relay races, long jump, high jump, triple jumps and hockey.

Councillor Helen Binmore, H&F cabinet member for children's services, said: "The council is currently looking for budding sporting superstars to become national heroes at the 2016 games."
