Sport & PE Students Inspired by Olympic Venues

Academy of Sport

A-Level PE students spent a day in London visiting the inspiring sites of the 2012 Olympics including the Aquatics Centre, the London Stadium and the Velopark.

Students were able to see how the docklands were regenerated. This was beneficial as the hosting of the Olympics is one of the topics covered on the A-Level PE course. Students also participated in a one hour vigorous track cycling session on the velodrome at the London VeloPark, the very same track where many medals were won by the likes of Chris Hoy and Victoria Pendleton at London 2012.

The trip was rounded off with a walking tour of the Olympic Park. Trips like these show the long lasting legacy of the games and Itchen students will be returning next year!
