FORMER Olympic swimmer Duncan Goodhew had a starring role in a week of Olympic activities at St Mary’s Catholic Primary School in Bicester.
Mr Goodhew, who won a gold medal for the 100m breastroke in the 1980 Olympic Games, paid an inspiring visit to the school on Wednesday.
He did an assembly with the children, who also had a chance to see his Olympic torch and gold medal.
Then the children made a line round the school and a replica torch was passed round.
School administrator Noeline Winter told the Review: “It was tremendously exciting for the school.
“It was just the icing on the cake having Duncan Goodhew here.”
On Thursday, the school held a very special sports day – the St Mary’s Olympics.
Mrs Winter said: “It’s been a superb week and it’s stayed dry for all our events.
“We’ve been blessed.”
