Silver medallist inspires

OLYMPIC aerialist David Morris inspired Year 8 students at Korumburra Secondary College last Tuesday (May 19).

David presented his story to the Year 8’s during their ACE session, outlining his determination to succeed.

His story is one of triumph against an adversarial system within Australian sport and the students found his desire to succeed and prove people wrong inspirational.

Amongst many chuckles relating to size being no obstacle, students were taken through his journey to Olympic success.

His visit from the Victorian Institute of Sport was a highlight of the week for students who all had the opportunity to lay their hands on David’s coveted Olympic silver medal.

Students wowed: Year 8 students were in awe of the obstacles Olympic aerialist David Morris (centre) had to overcome to achieve his silver medal.
