Brambles, Dormanstown and Pennyman Primary Academies were very lucky to have a surprise visit from a current WORLD CHAMPION.
Teesside Tornado Richard Kilty is a British track and field sprinter who competes in the 60 metres, 100 metres and 200 metres. He won the 15th World Indoor Athletics Championships 60 m indoor title with a new personal best of 6.49 seconds on 8th March 2014, running at Sopot, Poland.
Richard came in to the academies and discussed his life around Teesside, how he grew up, his surroundings etc. and the honours he has achieved and the goals he has set himself. As the 2014 champion, Kilty receives an automatic entry for the 60-metre race at the 2016 IAAF World Indoor Championships, to be held in the United States at Portland, Oregon.
