Gemma Gibbons Inspires Youngsters through Disney’s Aim High experience

Continuing the Olympic legacy, GB silver medallist Gemma Gibbons is hoping to capitalise on the increased interest in youth sports after this years games, by spending a day leading a special Ninja Training Academy for the pupils of Christ Church Primary School.

As an ambassador for Disney XD’s Aim High initiative, which is all about giving kids the chance to meet their heroes and inspiring them to be the best they can be and achieve their dreams, Gemma has visited the London school and taught the students some of their own Ninja moves.  

The session coincides with Disney XD’s new EMEA-produced animation, Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja (which launches on November 15th at 5pm), Gemma said: “The show is about friendship, loyalty and inspiration. If even one of these kids is inspired to take up any martial art, then it will mean the world to me.”
