Boston Grammar School pupils have been treated to a visit from former Great British Paralympic swimmer Fran Williamson.

She visited the school as part of the Sky Sports Living for Sport project, which is part of the country’s London 2012 legacy.

Williamson met with 12 year 10 GCSE PE students who were selected to be part of the prestigious BGS Sports Leadership Academy.

The youngsters took part in a series of motivational sessions with Williamson before they organised activities themselves for the year seven pupils in the afternoon.

Williamson was born with Athetoid Cerebral Palsy and didn’t take up swimming until she was 12.

By 15 she had won bronze at the European Championships.

In her 10-year international career, she won 13 World Championship and six Paralympic medals.
