Perri inspires next generation
Olympic athlete Perri Shakes-Drayton is hoping to inspire the next generation when she visits pupils in her home borough of Hackney.
Perri will speak to and train with young hopefuls from Stoke Newington and Cardinal Pole schools, leading a training session in preparation for the London Youth Games.
More than 20,000 young people across London will compete, with the best going on to take part at a national level in the School Games.
Shakes-Drayton wins Britain's second gold

Shakes-Drayton, who grew up in Bow, led from the front and powered to victory in 50.85 seconds, a second personal best in two days and the fastest time in the world this year.
