Olympian returns to BGS - Welcome back Emily

Former Bristol Grammar School student Emily Diamond returned to the School on Monday to give a talk to the Sixth Form about her journey from BGS to the Rio Olympics. Emily was part of the Bronze medal-winning 4x400m relay team in Rio and had brought her medal with her to show to the students.

Before the talk, held in the School’s new theatre, Emily met with Year 11 pupil Noah to answer questions for The Seed, Bristol Grammar School’s pupil-produced newspaper, and talked to several A Level Physical Education students about her training programme and life as an athlete.

She also shared her post-Olympic highlights which included attending the premiere of Bridget Jones’s Baby, meeting the Queen at Buckingham Palace and the parades in Manchester and London which provided a great chance to reunite with fellow Olympians.

Our thanks go to Emily for giving up her time to visit us, and for such an engaging and inspirational talk; we hope she enjoyed being back at BGS as much as we enjoyed having her here.
