Today we got a visit from Elliot To, a Kenyan runner.He is running in the Dublin marathon. His coach Neill Fleming, Mrs Flemings son gave us a slideshow demonstration of Eliot To`s fitness. He has more VO2 max than Mo Farah the 1500m Olympic runner for Britain. He told us how important running is for Soccer , Gaelic and Hurling.
Elliot told us that he ran to school and back for lunch and back to school and home. He gave us a running lesson in the hall. We all wish him luck for the marathon on Monday. We also wish our former teacher Mr. Tyrrell luck. One of the highlights was that disco bear got to meet Elliot. We hope that Disco Bear will be a lucky mascot for Elliot.
