Weightlifting in Class 1

Our school caretaker came to talk to the children about his other jobs. He works in a gym but is also a competitive weight lifter. He has recently returned from America where he retained three world titles.

The children heard all about the different weights he uses and how to lift the bar. He showed us the clothes he has to wear in competitions and talked about how he eats a healthy diet to help him stay in peak condition.

The children were able to ask him questions they had written earlier – ‘ Can you lift houses? ‘Do you look at your medals every day?’ ‘What do you have to eat?’

Thank you for coming to inspire the children – now we know what being a real strong man/lady involves.
