BMX Medal Winner Kye Whye Visits Michael Faraday

We were extremely lucky to have a very special visitor in school today.

Olympic BMX silver medallist Kye Whyte came into school to show us his medal and his unique BMX bike. He told us all about his journey to the Olympics in Tokyo and the hard work he has put in over the years in order to get there. He is already looking forward to and training hard for Paris 2024!

He has been riding BMX bikes since the age of three and has taken home several British titles. Kye’s silver medal was the first medal team GB has ever won in BMX!

The children had the opportunity to ask him lots of questions and some even got to hold his silver medal.

Several children at Michael Faraday use the BMX track in Burgess Park and, after Kye’s visit today, we think lots more will want to go!
