Sports Readers at GBHS were inspired to become 'Awesome' by Olympic Long Jump Athelete, JJ Jegede, on the last few days of the Autumn Term.
Great Baddow High School were delighted to welcome JJ Jegede back to the school, this time to spend some time with students involved in the Sports Reader scheme. Using photos and stories from his childhood and videos of inspirational sports atheletes he told them all that ' You all have some awesomeness inside you!' and it doesn't matter if everyone else seems 'bigger, stronger or better than you' you still have to go back and keep trying as 'You've got to be in it, to win it'.
JJ also brought along some of his medals, including his first ever Gold Medal, which he won at the Chelmsford Sport and Athletics Centre and his 2014 British Championship Medal.
