Team GB Athlete Coaches Pupils
Team GB Athlete Richard Buck spent the day at Caterham School coaching the School’s sports men and women. Richard represented team GB in both the Beijing and London Olympics and is an international indoor Gold medallist with the 4x400m team.
Richard spoke with several groups of pupils giving an overview of what characteristics are needed to succeed at the highest level. His message of determination, with particular focus on one area for improvement, and the acceptance of critique on one’s performance, echoes the GRIT philosophy that Caterham pupils are learning about this year.
After a highly informative session with the A Level PE group, and a performance discussion with the Caterham Athlete Programme (CAP) pupils at lunchtime, Richard put the First Year girls through their paces in the afternoon with a session on acceleration.
