Golden boy of gymnastics gets youngsters into shape

A GOLD medal-winning gymnast is to visit Midlothian as part of a motivational tour of Scottish schools.

Commonwealth Games champion Steve Frew will spend half a day at Newbattle High School in Dalkeith as part of Sky Sports Living for Sport – a project designed to inspire young people through participation in sport.

Bob Foley, head of PE at Newbattle High School, described the gymnast’s visit as “an honour”.

“His story is remarkable and will be a great source of inspiration for our young people,” he said. “The pupils are extremely excited.”

Steve said: “Different sports inspire different people but there’s a sport for everyone.”
