Two top athletes went back to school today in the hope of inspiring a new generation.
UK javelin champion Lee Doran, a former pupil at Morton School in Carlisle, was accompanied by his girlfriend, silver and bronze paralympic medalist Bethanie Woodward.
After a year of UK triumph in both the Olympic and Paralymics the reaction of the pupils to the local sporting superstars was pure gold.

Bethany Woodward won a Silver and Bronze medal at the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
She told ITV Border why it's important for children to take part in sport and learn about the paralympics:
World class javelin thrower Lee Doran, who is originally from Carlisle, visited pupils at his former school- Richard Rose Morton Academy.
He was joined by paralympian Bethany Woodward, who won a silver and bronze medal at the 2012 London Paralympics.
Both athletes attended a school assembly where they spoke to pupils about the importance of keeping active.
It was back to school for Carlisle born UK Javelin Champion Lee Doran as he visited Morton Academy in a bid to carry on the Olympic legacy.
He was accompanied by his girlfriend, silver and bronze winning paralympian Bethany Woodward on a visit to meet pupils at his former school.
Lee narrowly missed out on representing Britain at the London Olympics, but is currently training for Rio in 2016, as well as the 2014 Commonwealth games in Glasgow.
He comes from a family of gifted javelin champions- his elder sister Collette will be competing in the deaf olympics next year, meanwhile their younger sister Ellie Jo is an aspiring javellin thrower, currently in year 9 at the academy.
