Ask the athlete

10th April 2020, 11:30am | By Karen |

Ever wanted to ask an elite athlete a question? What’s it like to compete for your country or how did it feel to win an Olympic/Paralympic medal?

We are delighted to launch our ‘Ask the Athlete’ series today together with our first athlete, GB Rhythmic Gymnast Francesca Fox!

How does it work? Each Friday we will announce the next elite athlete on the Active Wiltshire facebook page and twitter. People can then submit any question you want to ask or maybe a challenge you would like that athlete to try by posting here or submitting by email to sportsdevelopment@wiltshire.gov.uk ! Questions need to be in by the following Monday and then our Athlete video will broadcast on Thursday each week.

So get your thinking caps on and submit your questions for Francesca now!

Don’t forget to keep checking back to see which athletes will be coming up in the weeks to come
