Costa Rican Olympic marathon runner gives talk
Olympian Gabriela Trana meets children

An Olympic marathon runner inspired youngsters when she gave a talk about her career and life as a top-class athlete.

Costa Rican Gabriela Trana was guest speaker at Windsor Leisure Centre, in Stovell Road, yesterday afternoon.

The 32-year-old finished 91st in the London 2012 women's marathon in a time of two hours 43 minutes and was her country's flagbearer at the Olympic opening ceremony.

She was one of only 11 athletes from the Central American country, which won no medals at the Olympics, to take part in the Games.

Captivated young people listened to her athletic tales and about life in Costa Rica in her inspirational talk.
