Albany pupils had a special visit from GB long jumper JJ Jegede this week.

Year 10 sports leaders at the Hornchurch school were inspired during a practical session and motivational workship with the British champion, who is a Sky Spoorts Living for Sports mentor.

Jegede explained his six keys to success during the visit and Albany’s School Games co-ordinator Lisa Wilson said: “JJ told his story of overcoming challenges to the pupils and amazed them with a DVD clip of him jumping over three Mini cars.”
