Athletics Academy students were given a fantastic opportunity to speak to professional athlete, Reece Prescod.


During the final week before half-term, Athletics Academy students were given a fantastic opportunity by Head Coach Ryan Freckleton, to speak to a former student-turned-professional athlete; Reece Prescod. 

Reece Prescod, who was the first GB Athlete to make a World Championship 100m final for over a decade, spoke to current and future students about his time at Oaklands. 

Students were given a valuable insight into life as a student, balancing student and social life, the commitment required and expected of professional athletes and the sacrifices needed to progress in the sport.
