Star Visit to Barnes Wallis meeting Olympic Bronze Medalist Marilyn Okoro

"My visit to see Marilyn was amazing! I was so excited (and a bit nervous!) to meet an athletic champion in person! i really enjoyed all the activities I did with her and the other school!"


"I really enjoyed meeting Marilyn Okoro. It made me feel special. The afternoon was very enjoyable. I would want to meet her again!"


"I loved going to the workshop with Marilyn Okoro, she was amazing. She taught us lots of amazing things. And I loved seeing her medal! It was so inspirational, and heavy!"


"When I met Marilyn, I felt honoured. I was so happy and she inspired me to fulfil my dreams. I am very inspired as she persevered and got a Bronze medal! It was amazing. All the exercises she taught us were awesome and tired me out!"
