BMX bike cham­pion rides into city school

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

SPORTY pupils at Or­mis­ton Bush­field Academy were vis­ited by a cham­pion BMX bike rider.

Forty stu­dents aged from 11 to 16 at the academy took part in a BMX cy­cle work­shop led by Mike Mullen, a for­mer world ama­teur cham­pion, BMX World Mas­ters cham­pion and a Sky Sports – Liv­ing for Sport men­tor.

Most of the stu­dents who took part are sports lead­ers at the academy who each have a ma­jor re­spon­si­bil­ity for help­ing to or­gan­ise and sup­port sport­ing ac­tiv­i­ties within the school in Or­ton Gold­hay.

Mike Mullen en­cour­aged the stu­dents to get in­volved in a range of BMX ac­tiv­i­ties and to test their cy­cle skills.

Leanne Sansby, a PE teacher at the school, said: “Mike was ab­so­lutely bril­liant in the way he en­thused and mo­ti­vated our stu­dents.

“Our young­sters gained much from the ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing learn­ing new skills, hav­ing their con­fi­dence boosted and en­hanc­ing their abil­ity to be ef­fec­tive while sup­port­ing team mem­bers.

The smiles and shouts of joy through­out the event made it clear our stu­dents had a great time.”
