Gold medalist sends inspirational note to pupil

The 100 and 200 meters Gold medallist Blessing Okagbare sent Scottish pupil Kaila Gallacher (P7) from St Cuthbert’s Primary School in South Lanarkshire an inspirational note (see below) on her departure.  Kaili’s art work was displayed in Blessing’s room and she wrote the note on a postcard provided as part of the Athletes’ Village Art competition. 

We believe Blessing’s message is worth sharing with you no matter what nationality, age or sporting inclination. It reads:  “Whatever you choose to be in life, choose wisely, believe in yourself and goals and the sky will be your limit (positive Goals).”

Many thanks for your encouraging words, Blessing and our very best wishes for your future challenges.
