PARALYMPIAN GB swimmer Kate Grey is set to provide inspiration to youngsters at the Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire Sport Winter Sainsbury’s School Games County Festival.
Kate, who was a finalist in the SB9 100m breaststroke at the London 2012 Paralympic Games, will be visiting the Games at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Centre (QDJC) in Rugby on March 25.
Kate will be attending the event in her capacity as a Sport England Sporting Champion and is excited about interacting with the young people who attend the event.
“Having represented Great Britain at major events like the Paralympics and World Championships, I feel it is really important for me to give something back to sport because it has given me so much. That is why I love being a Sport England Sporting Champion and working with young people.” she said.
“I am looking forward to doing just that at the upcoming CSW Sport Winter School Games. I am excited to meet all the young participants and volunteers in attendance and my aim is to raise their aspirations of what they can achieve. I know that it will be a fantastic event so I cannot wait for the action to get underway.”
The Sainsbury’s School Games is an exciting, fully inclusive competition for schoolchildren in England. They are designed to motivate, enthuse and inspire young people across the country to take part in more competitive school sport.
The Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire County Festivals are organised by the PE and School Sport Steering Group, which is made-up of representatives from school and community sport, national governing bodies of sport and local authorities, and supported by CSW Sport.
