FORMER Olympian and silver medal winner Roger Black took time out to visit some school pupils.
The housewives' favourite spoke to 120 students at John Roan School in Maze Hill about his life and dreams of being a doctor before his talent was spotted as an athlete.
Along with Mr Black, they were also visited by an ex-convict, Sean Kelly, who gave a contrasting talk about how he turned his life around once he got out of jail.
Year 10 student Chloe Garland said: "Roger Black made me once again excited about the Olympics and motivated me to achieve my goals."
