Primary school children enjoyed PE sessions led by Olympic swimmer and Team GB silver medallist Siobhan-Marie O’Connor this week.

The pupils at Mill Lane Community Primary School in Chinnor were specially selected by Persimmon Homes North London to enjoy the unique training session as part of the housebuilder’s partnership with Team GB.

After telling the children how she used to swim 10km every day during training, the Olympian, who has won 34 medals, answered children’s questions and devised a fun ‘walking’ relay medley.

Ms O’Connor said: “Giving children the opportunity to experience different sports is so important as it helps improve their confidence, self-esteem and physical fitness.

“The partnership between Persimmon Homes and Team GB allows us to help inspire the next generation and it is a pleasure to be able to share my passion for sport with the pupils.

"I hope they may have been inspired and will look at what other activities are open to them too.”
