Olympic Torch Bearers!

Hever students carried the Olympic Flame on the Daily Mile today. They learnt about torch bearers from the  London 2012 torch relay. The gold torch belongs to Laura Kenny. 


Laura Kenny won the hearts of the British public at the London 2012 Olympic Games where, at the age of just 20, she captured gold medals on the track in the team pursuit and the multi-discipline omnium event.


As a key part of the Great Britain team that won 12 medals - eight of them gold - across the cycling events, Kenny became one of the nation’s most popular athletes and went on to further success four years later in Rio, taking her personal tally of Olympic gold medals to four as she successfully defended both titles.


This experience has encouraged children to follow the start of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Torch Relay!
