BBC School News Report interview with Mr Angus Cameron
On the 27th of November Primary 7b had the opportunity to ask an Olympic Official, Mr Cameron some questions. Everyone was very eager and enthusiastic to ask questions but only a handful of pupils were selected.
Mr Cameron, who had previously visited Killermont on Friday 23rd November, had been a race starter at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games. He had been invited to the school by Miss Smith our Head Teacher as he was a neighbour of another member of staff.
Mr Cameron brought us some souvenirs from the games. They were all very interesting but our favourite was an inspirational letter written especially for Killermont Primary by Mo Farah himself. You can see the letter below.
Mr Cameron described the experience as “a dream come true”. He talked about his experiences as a child and mentioned that his ambition had been to become a footballer and an athlete. Having met many of the classes role models we were interested to find out who Mr Cameron’s role model was. He told us that he found all the Olympic and Paralympic athletes inspirational but his own personal childhood role model was Vladmir Kutz who was a Russian sprinter in the late fifties.
Mr Cameron explained that his favourite moment during the Olympics was watching Jessica Ennis and Mo Farah win their gold medals. He felt overwhelmed with emotion and was proud to be British. He also talked about his experience in the Olympic stadium. Mr Cameron described the massive stadium which held 80,000 fans as very exciting with a wall of sound which followed the athletes round the stadium. Mr Cameron told us that he felt terrified by the noise and volume of the crowd but felt reassured by the support and encouragement from the other Olympic officials. He also commented on the high level of good sportsmanship among many of the athletes.
Primary 7B thoroughly enjoyed Mr Cameron’s visit and look forward to seeing him again. He is a good role model for our school and we hope that he will inspire us to follow our dreams.
