AN OLYMPIAN recently visited Hereford and County Athletics Club to pass on her guidance and expertise.

Throwing coach Eden Francis represented Great Britain at the Olympics in Discus and Shot Put and has recently helped several competitors who competed for Great Britain at the European Championships.

The Hereford throwing group received instructions for a warm-up and drills for throwing a Discus and Shot Put.

She followed this with individual coaching for the two events. The final part of the evening was a question and answer session from which the squad were inspired by her progress from an eight-year-old to England Champion.

Hereford and County Athletics Club coach Phil Wells thanked Francis for her visit.
