Helen Richardson-Walsh MBE and the rest of the Women’s GB Hockey team were an inspiration to our nation last year after securing Gold in the Olympic Games. Not only an inspiration on the Hockey pitch, Helen will be coming to Hampshire next month to help inspire more young school children to be physically active during the school day, with the help of The Golden Mile initiative.
Langstone Cutters Gig Club have 5 newly qualified Rowing Coaches thanks to support from the Energise Coaches Project 500 bursary scheme, funded by Hampshire County Council. These 5 women went on to coach crews in the recent world championships in the Isles of Scilly where the results showed the fantastic impact coaches have with athletes.
The festival is a celebration and an official launch of the Golden Mile and gives schools the opportunity to see the Golden Mile in action and receive the training required so that you can leave ready to start. Schools will also have the chance to hear from Olympic Gold medallist, Helen Richardson-Walsh who will be supporting the day.
