She shared her feel­ings about when she won the gold medal at the World In­door Cham­pi­onships in 2012 and what it was like to rep­re­sent the UK in the Lon­don Olympics.

Yamilé left the chil­dren with ad­vice in­clud­ing never give up, be­lieve in your­self and fol­low your dreams.

Staff at the school in Car­lyon Road, Hayes, thanked her and the Sport for Schools or­gan­i­sa­tion for the in­spir­ing visit.
