Esher College students who have achieved sporting success found out what it is like to compete in the Olympics.

The college held its third annual roll of sporting excellence day on Thursday, June 19, to celebrate the achievements of top athletes.

Double Olympian swimmer Ed Sinclair talked to students about his experiences at the Athens and Beijing Olympics and sports nutritionist Libby Linford gave students advice on nutrition during training and competitions.

Sports psychologist Rebecca Symes was also on hand to explain how to cope with injury and stress.

Catherine Tighe, PE teacher at Esher College, said: "It has been a brilliant day and a fantastic opportunity to not only recognise and celebrate the high calibre of athletes we have here at Esher College, but also a day where students have been inspired and guided by professionals in the world of sport."
