AN OLYMPIC medal-winning swimmer sought to inspire young sportsmen and women when she visited Flax Bourton Primary School.

Sharron Davies talked to youngsters about her life story and how she was competing nationally at primary school age.

The visit was arranged as part of the school’s Magical Experience programme to inspire and motivate pupils.

Each child had the chance to have their photo take with Sharron, which was printed along with some of her inspiring words.
