A former British Olympic badminton player has been inspiring youngsters on a visit to a Lynn school.

Anthony Clark, pictured above with pupils, shared his experiences of competing at the highest level when he visited St Martha’s Primary School in Gaywood on Friday.

The event was organised as part of the Be The Best You Can Be campaign, which was set up after the London Olympics to inspire children to pursue their own ambitions in whatever field they choose.

Anthony, who represented Great Britain at the Athens and Beijing Olympics, also won two World Championship silver medals and six Commonwealth Games medals during his career. mlnf14pm10040
