Commonwealth/Olympic athlete visits Appleby

An athlete from the Bahamas team came and visted Appleby today. Her name was Chloe Powell. She is Tyler's aunty. Here are some facts about her.

Chloe ran 100 metres in 11.4 seconds at the 1972 Munich Olympics. When she was there some terrorists came to kill some people in another team. Now she plays tennis. She has won 25-30 trophies.

Chloe was an excellent role model for children to keep on trying to achieve their goals and to believe in themselves. Chloe was a ground breaking athlete who was the first woman from the Bahamas to attend an Olympic games. It was great for them to talk with someone who has accomplished so much.
