GLADIATORS roared into action at a Cradley Heath school to inspire pupils to enjoy sports and fitness.

Wayne Gordon and Jenny Pacey , aka Doom and Enigma, kicked off their day at Corngreaves Primary School with a motivational talk at the morning assembly before working with years three and four.

Head of PE and science Emma Day said the celebrity pair inspired the children by talking about their careers in sport – which has included stunt work in films and being personal trainers to the famous.

They also took the pupils through their paces with a series of fitness games.

Miss Day added: “They really engaged the children, who were surprised at how young they had been when they first took part in sport which then became their careers. They’ve certainly been buzzing since the visit.”
