MORE than 100 youngsters attended free athletics sessions to find the next Olympic champion.

Don Valley Stadium – where Olympic golden girl Jessica Ennis was first spotted - hosted the event for school pupils from across South Yorkshire.

They took part in assessed track and field activities with the goal of unearthing Team GB athletes of the future

It was one of a number of free athletics sessions organised by Sheffield International Venues at Don Valley and the English Institute of Sport.

The English Institute of Sport in Sheffield is also hosting free athletics session next month for kids of all ages.
