Olympic hockey star Helen Richardson has taken on a new role to inspire young people to improve their lives.
The bronze medallist, who lives in Maidenhead, will join athlete mentors including Jessica Ennis and Darren Campbell as a representative of Sky Sports Living for Sport.
She will be visiting pupils in secondary schools across the South-east and using her story of overcoming adversity to motivate students.
Helen said: "2012 was a fantastic sporting year for Great Britain and I think it is important to build on the momentum from the Olympic Games and encourage the next generation of young people to take up sport.
"I am excited to go into schools and share my story and inspire the pupils to apply the life lessons they can learn through sport to all aspects of their lives."
