PULSES were racing when a soon-to-be Olympic athelete made a special visit to a Vale school.
There was plenty of excitement at Harvington First School on Monday (April 23) when pupils got the chance to quiz Great Britain 800 metre sprinter Joe Thomas.
The visit was organised by Team Superschools an organisation arranging special visits in schools aiming to get children of all ages excited ahead of the London Olympics starting at the end of July.
Cardiff born Thomas, who is competing in the London Olympics later this summer, demonstrated to children his pacy skills and gave them an insight into the training and diet needed to be a top athlete.
Classteacher Ian Urray told the Observer: "The visit was fantastic and the children loved it. They were truly inspired by him and it was great to see them all get into the Olympic spirit."
