Year 8 students from Henry Kendall High School have enjoyed a video conference with Australian Olympic and Commonwealth games sprinter, Rohan Browning.

Browning currently holds the record for the fastest person in Australia and is the third fastest Australian in history.

Students had the opportunity to listen to a 30-minute presentation by Browning who regularly visits high schools as a NSW Institute of Sport Ambassador.

Browning spoke to students about the challenges he has faced in his career and the resilience he had to show to overcome these issues.

Henry Kendall High School’s Head Teacher PDHPE, Gareth Wright, said students were motivated by Browning’s presentation and learnt about the importance of goal setting.

“It is safe to say the students thoroughly enjoyed the presentation and it is something which they can focus their attention to in the coming weeks,” Wright said.
