The College Sports Awards Evening, which included the Duke of Edinburgh Awards for the first time this year, saw a full house in our campus Merlin Theatre on Tuesday 12 July.

Our VIP guest of honour for this event was the UK’s first professional free rider, National Mountain Bike Champion and World Record holder Chris Smith.  The former Frome College student, brought with him one of his five racing bikes which are valued at over £5,000 by his sponsors. 

Chris gave an inspirational speech to the crowd about following your dreams and how hard work and commitment can lead to great things in life. He has been a professional sportsman for over 15 years, and his own career has taken him all over the world. Chris followed the speech with a presentation which had the crowd gasping and gripped in their seats by a ‘white knuckle’ video taken from his crash helmet camera of a very narrow and very steep downhill street race and jumps through a mountain side town in Mexico.
