Tollbar MAT Sixth Form College P.E. and Science students met former 800m and 1500m champion athlete and now TV Sports Commentator Steve Cram when he visited the college before Tollbar Academy's Awards Night at Grimsby Auditorium.

The students were able to chat informally to him and ask him about his career and his views on the world of Athletics today, as he had just returned from the World Championships in Doha.

Students also asked for his advice on juggling sports careers with education. He told them never to rule anything out. He completed his Degree in Sports Science at Newcastle and won the World Championships in the same year.

"You can do both," he said.
