The Olympic Gold Medal winning Hockey player, Helen Richardson Walsh MBE, visited Stamford High School to coach and inspire young Hockey students and sports scholars.
Following a guest coaching session, Helen gave a presentation that was focused around the key topics of confidence, striving for the best, and using mistakes as catalysts for progress. She culminated her speech by sharing the quote, by Norman Vincent Peale, that she has used as her ongoing inspiration throughout her career: “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”
Mr Mark Nasey, Director of Sport and Performance at Stamford Endowed Schools, said: “The Schools welcomed inspirational sportswoman Helen Richardson Walsh to share her wealth of experience with our students.
“She discussed her hockey knowledge from 293 appearances for England and Great Britain, as well as her haul of 16 medals from 17 years and four Olympics, with her pinnacle of the Gold Medal Achieved at the Rio Olympics in 2016!
“Helen put the girls through their paces on the Hockey Astro, and then presented to the Hockey players, Sports Scholars and staff, delivering powerful messages around setting goals, backing yourself, aiming for the moon and celebrating all that we are good at. It was truly inspirational!”
