Four-time Olympic Gold medallist Sir Matthew Pinsent made a fleeting visit to The Paragon on Friday afternoon. Pictured here with Miss Allenby and her Olympic Torch, Sir Matthew was taken aback when he arrived exclaiming, 'Wow. What a beautiful school!'.
Since retiring from rowing in 2004, he has been working as a broadcaster for the BBC and has recently hosted the 'World Olympic Dreams' series in which he interviewed aspiring Olympic hopefuls from around the world.
