FORMER Olympian Bryan Steel returned to Wisbech’s Thomas Clarkson Community College to present certificates and medals to students completing the “Be the Best” programme.

Bryan, who is an Olympic medal winner and represented Great Britain in the 1992, 1996 and 2004 summer Olympics in cycling, launched the programme at the school earlier in the year.

Over 220 Year 7 students have taken part learning skills which will hopefully stand them in good stead for the rest of their lives.

The programme involves goals and skills such as team building and increasing confidence.

It is based around the values of the Olympics with the aim of instilling these into young people.

It will be rounded off with the students using all these skills to stage their own mini Olympics from now until the end of term.

Kate Allgood, deputy head of Pankhurst Learning Community, said it went very well.

She said Bryan also commented on the difference he could see the programme had made to the young people when he came back for the presentation.

Kate said the students were very interested to hear from Bryan at the launch how cycling had helped to turn his life around.
