    ‘EVERY ATHLETE’S DREAM’ SAYS NICOLA

    November 29th, 2012

    NICOLA WHITE stepped into the shoes of former Loughborough College student Sarah Stevenson today to read the Olympic athletes’  oath.

     The history-making Taekwondo star, 29, now a College sports ambassador, read the words on the biggest stage of all at the Olympic Games opening ceremony at London 2012 a few months ago.

     Nicola, 24, sporting her bronze medal won with Team GB’s women’s hockey team, welcomed  120 youngsters from Loughborough’s Church of England, Mountfields and Boothwood schools to the latest Flames Festival staged at the Netball Centre at Loughborough University.

     She told them: “London 2012 was great.  It’s every athlete’s dream to play in a home Olympics in front of friends and family. One of the best things of all was meeting so many people – in particular Mo Farreh, who is someone I have always put on a pedestal. He was really genuine and a great guy.”

     Now backing playing top class hockey for Premier Division high-flyers Leicester Ladies, Nicola added: “I’m trying to get young people involved in sport and to be physically active.”

     Boothwood School learning support assistant Carole Chamberlain summed up: “I went to Flames last year and I think the programme is brilliant. The most exciting thing of all for the children is to actually see someone who has won an Olympic medal.”
