Olympian Ben Challenger in Thurrock

THERE HAS never been a better time for the borough’s aspiring athletes to learn from those who have competed at the highest level.

Olympic High Jumper Ben Challenger joined students from Treetops and Beacon Hill school for an afternoon learning all about the events that make athletics the centrepiece of the Olympics.

Ben’s belief is that you must enjoy the sport first. After that, anything is possible. We spoke to Ben and staff from Treetops about what they and the students had got from the day.
