Rio 2016 – 10 Olympians from Plymouth College

It would appear impossible, for a small school community like Plymouth College, with only 500 students, to be represented by 10 Olympians at Rio 2016. Plymouth College is world famous for its aquatic programmes, but this year has more students at the Olympics than any other school in the UK.

These students are representing the school:

Tom Daley (GB) Diving - Wins Bronce Medal in men's 10m synchro diving
Rūta Meilutytė (Lithuania) 100m Breaststroke
Ben Proud (GB) –50m and 100m Freestyle
Julie Meynen (Luxembourg) – 100M Freestyle
Paulina Schmiedel (Germany) – 4 x 200m freestyle relay
Jamila Lunkuse (Uganda) – 100m Breaststroke
Lara Butler (Cayman Islands) – 100m Breaststroke
Ahmad Attellesey (Libya) – 50m Freestyle
Jade Howard (Zambia) – 100m Freestyle
Geoffrey Butler (Cayman Islands) – 400m Freestyle

For more information on the aquatics programme Plymouth has created a new video, presented by Jon Rudd, Olympic Gold Medal winning coach

Video of Gold Medal Winning Coach, Jon Rudd discusses how Olympians are made at Plymouth College.

If you would like to follow the student’s progress Plymouth is running a live news service on their twitter feed and #olympicschool and full updates on their Facebook page.

Please feel free to contact us anytime if you would like to find out more about the school and the application process.
