Polwhele House School, Cornwall, received a special visit from three-time Olympic Silver medallist, Frances Houghton.
Polwhele House welcomed the World Champion rower for the morning in order to inspire and educate the children on competing at a high level.
Houghton won silver medals at the 2004, 2008 and 2016 Olympic Games and was part of four World Championship-winning crews in the quadruple sculls.
Houghton is no stranger to competing at a young age, having  rst made the Junior team in 1995 aged 14. She  nished fourth in the quadruple scull in her  rst World Rowing Junior Championships just a year later aged 15.
