Martin Gillingham Talks to Trent

Academic Whole School Programme

On the 1st February we welcomed Martin Gillingham, broadcaster, Olympian and Trent parent, to talk to the Sixth Form about his life in Sport and take questions from the floor. Martin’s life story, with the highs, lows, successes and failures was very entertaining and the inside knowledge of life on the track made fascinating listening.

Stories of forgotten heroes, David Hemery, Kriss Akabusi, Linford Christie, to name but a few, gave us an insight into the human beings behind the big names. Stories of embarrassing moments with ex England Manager Kevin Keegan also kept us amused.

The evening finished with questions from the floor, covering a wide range of sporting topics – training tips, personal views and sound career advice for those looking to the media made for an enjoyable and informative talk.

We are grateful to Martin for giving up his time
