International javelin thrower Joe Dunderdale put pupils through their paces at Spilsby Primary School.

Commonwealth Games athlete Joe joined the group of year 3 children for a special training session held at the King Edward VI Academy.

A three times national champion and a Commonwealth Games competitor, the Lincolnshire based athlete was ranked first in England and 28th in Europe in 2014.

Teaching assistant Lindsey Rossiter said: “Joe taught the children how to hold, stand and throw the javelin, which they thoroughly enjoyed and even began to look like professionals by the end of the session.”
