Students enjoyed an ‘unbelievable’ experience when Sky Sports pundit Chris Kamara visited Highfields as part of an action-packed PE challenge event.

The former footballer - famous for his ‘Unbelievable Jeff’ catchphrase as an analyst on Sky Sports Soccer Saturday show - visited the school as part of the event run by Medical Mavericks.

Medical Mavericks worked with around 100 PE students from Years 8 and 9 on a range of Sport Science-related activities including agility and reaction tests, as well as cycling and rowing challenges. They even got the chance to race alongside a virtual Usain Bolt on a test called The Accelerator. The Challenge the Champions workshop that students completed is the same as one seen on Sky Sports Gamechangers and saw them use state-of-the-art equipment to test themselves against the records set by the best sportspeople in the world.

Chris Kamara added to the experience by providing the voiceover for video footage captured on the day.

Dozens of students queued during their lunch break to meet the star and he happily  posed for photographs with his fans.

PE Teacher, Mr A Jeavons, said: “He was typical ‘Kammy' as you see on TV - really enthusiastic and lovely with the students by allowing them to take photos with him.

“It was a fantastic event all round, filled with fun, excitement and learning. Many thanks to the Medical Mavericks team and Chris Kamara for providing such an enjoyable event for our students.”
