Olympian to give sports sem­i­nar

Cambridge Edition - - WHAT’S ON - EMMA JAMES

Olympic Ath­lete Nikki Ham­blin pre­sent­ing a Cam­bridge Drug Free Sport sem­i­nar at St Peter’s School on Fri­day.

The sem­i­nar, pre­sented by Drug Free Sport NZ to launch the Good Clean Sport – Youth pro­gramme, will be pre­sented to the school’s first sports teams and elite ath­lete classes.

Olympic run­ner Nikki Ham­blin will be at­tend­ing the sem­i­nar to show her sup­port of the cause.

‘‘Ed­u­ca­tion and sup­port al­lows us to stay true to our val­ues so we can go to the start line or the play­ing field know­ing we did it the right way.

‘‘It also pro­tects the in­tegrity of our sports that are a sig­nif­i­cant part of our lives,’’ she said.

St Peter’s Di­rec­tor of Sport Nic Slade said sec­ondary school sport is be­com­ing in­creas­ingly more com­pet­i­tive with the pres­sures on stu­dents and teams to win.

‘‘We be­lieve this is very im­por­tant in­for­ma­tion and de­liv­ers the tools to help our stu­dents make the right de­ci­sions.

We want our stu­dents to be well in­formed and un­der­stand the im­por­tance of com­pet­ing clean and we want to help pro­mote the val­ues of clean sport,’’ he said.
