Track talent at Athénée Royal
Olivia attended Athénée Royal between 1989 and 2001, and younger brothers Jonathan and Kevin were at the school from 1994 until 2002.
During their time at the school, their sporting abilities were obvious and they are remembered for working hard in Physical Education (PE) lessons.
Sport is an important part of school life
Sports teacher, Mr Viance, says that the brothers were well-behaved and always receptive to advice offered by the staff.
Olivia's PE teacher, Mrs Ledent, remembers her as a kind and willing student who was always happy to get involved in team sports.
However, away from the track, the brothers are also remembered by Mrs Sougné for keeping each other company in school detention.
The three sprinters were made honorary citizens of La Roche in 2008 and have returned to the school a number of times.
Jonathan and Kevin always worked hard in PE and showed exceptional athletic ability
Sport and success at the school
