James Godard, three-time Olympian, visited St Andrews on Friday to give our budding swimmers some coaching tips. On arrival he was really impressed and said we had the best swimming facilities he had ever seen in any school! He started off the session by allowing students, who answered the quiz questions correctly, a chance to wear his medals and also to try on his treasured Team GB Olympic jacket. During the coaching sessions he passed on tips for streamlining, diving and various stroke techniques for front crawl and back stroke. At the end of the session the students took on the Olympic champion in a medley race! It was a fantastic opportunity and all the students were really inspired by his coaching.
