Olympic Hopeful, JJ Jegede pays a visit to St Roberts

Olympic hopeful and British Long Jumper JJ Jegede visited St Roberts to meet with pupils from Year 11 and 20 identified talented athletes. JJ talked to pupils about how to overcome obstacles to reach their full potential as well as giving guidance to the 20 talented athletes about how to continue to do well and achieve in their sport. The talented athletes, from each year group were totally inspired by JJ and his attitude, Young ambassador, Jennifer Barker (Y12) said ” he was brilliant, he was really inspiring and showed that if you try really hard you can make it”, whilst Jessica Vaughan (Y8) a British Gymnast said ” he was really really good, he showed me that even if you get injured you can still come back and then get to the Olympics”

Year 11 pupils had the opportunity to listen to JJ talk to them about his achievements and aspirations and how anyone can get to where they want to by working hard and taking every opportunity that is in front of them.

The school were able to offer this experience through the SKY Sports living for sports scheme and if you’d like more information about JJ Jegede and his long jump over 3 MINI cars please visit
