Gold medal winner Jason Gardener joined pupils at Littletown Primary Academy.

Gold medal winning Olympian Jason Gardener was inspiring the next generation of athletes in Honiton.

Jason Gardener joined pupils at Littletown Primary Academy last week as part of the Team Superschools’ initiative.

The children were put through their paces by the athlete, who gave them exercise routines to do, and watched a video of Jason’s gold medal winning performance in Athens.

They were also able to get their pictures taken with the sports star and hold his gold medal.
