Team GB Olympian visits Salisbury school sports day
10 August 2021
South Coast region arranged for a Team GB Olympic silver medallist to make a surprise visit to a Salisbury school’s end of term sports day.
Swimmer Jazz Carlin, who won two silver medals at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, joined students of St Peter’s CE Primary Academy as a VIP guest of Persimmon, as part of our partnership with Team GB.
Jazz said: “Seeing the children taking part in sport was lovely and they had me taking part in the obstacle course, the egg and spoon race and running with a hoop on my head!”
“The partnership between Persimmon Homes and Team GB allows us to help inspire the next generation and it is a pleasure to be able to share my passion for sport with the pupils.”
Graeme Cole, sales director for Persimmon South Coast, added: “We are always keen to put something back into the communities where we are building. It was a pleasure to be able to visit St Peter’s Primary along with Jazz as part of our partnership with Team GB.”
“The children were interested in her path to becoming a Team GB athlete and competing at an Olympic Games. Who knows, she may have inspired some athletes of the future.”
