STUDENTS shared an inspirational audience with Olympic silver medallist Alison Mowbray who talked about her rowing career and gave them a lesson in sports psychology.

The 11 to 14-year-olds at Springfield School in Drayton were joined by pupils from Solent Juniors and Highbury Primary.

Dr Mowbray invited the youngsters to think about their own Olympic Medal Moment before working with PE pupils to give them an understanding of sports psychology. 

Springfield student Rachel Lewis, 14, said: ‘It’s very exciting and helpful given my ambition to be a PE teacher.

‘It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be “coached” by an Olympic medallist.’
