Athletics: an introduction to the javelin with Lenny Brisseault
As part of the promotion of the "Herculis Meeting", Year 6 pupils from Saint-Charles School gathered at the Louis II Stadium for a P.E. session in which they were introduced to javelin throwing, which has been an Olympic sport since 1908. The aim was to show that sport has an important place in schools and is accessible to the youngest children. This event was attended by athlete Lenny Brisseault, javelin thrower and French record holder in the 14-15 age group.
