Olympic Athlete Abi Oyepitan has been to Ridgmont Lower School to talk to pupils about getting involved in sport.

Abi is an Olympic 100 and 200 meter sprinter and a Commonwealth Gold Medalist.

As well as this, Abi and Jonny from Sports 4 All got the children to have a go at some basic training exercises.
