Year 10 had an unusual PE lesson at Barn Elms today as they met Iwan Thomas, an ex-GB Olympian who was there making a feature for ‘The One Show’ to celebrate the 110th anniversary of the London Olympic Games, which took place at the White City Stadium in 1908.

Iwan Thomas revisited the story of Dorando Pietri, an Italian marathon runner who won the event in the 1908 Olympic Games with encouragement from the British crowds, only to be later disqualified. Year 10 pupils enjoyed taking part in the film, helping Iwan around the track, cheering him on and helping to measure out distances.
