Sports students from Doncaster College had a surprise bonus recently, during a visit to the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield, when they bumped into Olympic gold medal hopeful, Jessica Ennis.
Pete Holmes, Sports and Exercise Science lecturer at the College and one of the organisers of the trip said, ‘ Jessica was training all the morning that we were there, so we had lots of opportunity to watch her. I grabbed her on the way out for a photo, so we didn’t really get to chat much to her! We were pretty thrilled about it though and some of the students were getting changed and missed the picture, so they were gutted’
A mix of twenty-seven, Level 2 and Level 3 students toured the world-class facilities at the Institute and had the opportunity to take part in some mixed athletic sessions and netball. As well as seeing Jessica Ennis they saw some of the Great Britain Paralympics Table Tennis players training ‘and they were pretty impressive’ said Pete.
The trip is one of a number of visits, trips and activities arranged during the students time at College, which are beneficial to their course and learning.
Doncaster College runs a host of sports-based courses from its Hub campus.
