Up close with Clare Balding OBE at Girls Go Gold

Posted on September 25, 2018


Twelve of our elite athletes had the most amazing day at the Girls Go Gold Conference in Oxfordshire on Friday 14 September 2018 and the highlight for many was being able to meet and chat with Clare Balding OBE. They were treated to some particularly memorable keynote speakers and the event launched with brain tumour survivor, James Shone, who has founded the charity ‘I can and I am’.

The girls then split into groups to attend some workshops with one half enjoying a netball coaching session with Tamsin Greenway, an England International player. The rest were taken off to a hockey masterclass with Team GB players, Becky Middleton and Zoe Shipperley. The day culminated in a Q&A with the panel, chaired by the ever-charismatic Clare Balding. “Truly amazing” and “such a good day” seems to sum up everyone’s experience.
