BMX champion Mike Mullen visits Highgate school to launch Olympic legacy programme
A BMX champion has launched a programme designed to inspire children to chase after their dreams at a primary school.
Mike Mullen, the UK’s 2014 BMX half-pipe champion, led a talk and a question-and-answer session with pupils at St Michael’s Primary School in North Road, Highgate, on Monday.
The former world champion was there to launch national scheme Be The Best You Can Be!, which aims to raise self-confidence in young people by helping them discover the skills they will need to pursue their ambitions.
At the end of the programme, pupils will receive a recognition award and certificate.
It follows Mr Mullen’s visit to Stroud Green school St Aiden’s last week, where he opened its new sports court.
