Sport is such a great way to stay fit and be competitive. You can play it with family, friends or in clubs and even compete in big competitions! All our sporting heroes started by playing their chosen sport with friends or family, but who is your hero? Write a fact file about someone you admire and look up to for their sporting skills or accomplishments. I look forward to seeing who you choose!

Be adventurous, be brave and make them exciting!
