BBC Assembly about black athletes.


Ask the assembly for a show of hands. Who has heard of Usain Bolt? Who knows what he has achieved?

Then ask who has heard of McDonald Bailey. If you do know who he is, can you tell me what he is well known for?

McDonald Bailey was a sprinter and one of the first black athletes to win an Olympic medal for Great Britain in 1952. Even though he could be described as the Usain Bolt of his day very few people have heard of him.

Tessa Sanderson is a female javelin thrower who won Olympic medals for Team GB in the 1980s and was the British woman to win Olympic gold in a throwing event. Tessa also wants lots more young people to get involved in sport.
