Sleaford student attends Young Ambassador Celebration at Wembley
A SPORTY student from Sleaford has attended a Young Ambassador Celebration day at Wembley to celebrate her work as a Young Ambassador and to create and carry out the legacy of last year's Olympic Games.
Amy Borrill, 18, from Carre's Grammar School, was nominated by teachers and peers at the school to attend the event on March 6.
She said: "I travelled to Wembley Stadium where I met with 400 of the top Young Ambassadors across the UK and met Team GB Olympic and Paralympic athletes such as Olympian Helen Richardson, 2012 Hockey bronze medalist and Paralympian Mel Clarke, 2012 Para-Archery silver medalist.
"I was also fortunate enough to hold the Olympic torch and meet the world record holder for the triple jump, Jonathan Edwards."

Amy got involved with the Young Ambassador programme when she joined the Sleaford Joint Sixth Form where she was inspired by her teachers there to make a change to sport.
She said: "When my work inside and outside of school was recognised by my Physical Education teachers at Carre's Grammar School and from becoming a Young Ambassador the opportunities for me to increase participation in sport exploded."
Amy's voluntary work as an ambassador includes setting up Carre's Grammar Netball team and the Carre's Grammar Staff Netball Team and acting as captain and coach; volunteering on Carre's Grammar School Outreach Programme to various primary schools, her local dance school and at an autistic school.
Throughout her day at Wembley Amy was taught how to implement phase three of Lead Your Generation and how to create a long lasting legacy of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
She added: "Becoming a Young Ambassador has allowed me to inspire young children to take part in sport and to be a part of the legacy of the London 2012 Olympic Games which only inspires me further to carry out my sporting ideas to increase participation of sport in my local area."
