Dagenham pupils put through their paces by top British sprinter

Children threw themselves into a training circuit with a little help from a top British sprinter.

Rikki Fifton led the obstacle course at Leys Primary School in Leys Avenue, Dagenham on Friday.

The Sports 4 All UK event raised money for the school’s PE department and UK athletes who are not Lottery-funded.

Fifton, 27, runs for Newham and Essex Beagles in the 100m and 200m.
