The group also met a range of inspirational sports people, including Welsh cycling ace and Olympic champion, Geraint Thomas.

The young people, including Dominic Jones from Ysgol Maesydderwen, Abbie Price from John Beddoes High School, and Mollie Gibbons from Gwernyfed High School, together with Hannah Charnley from Ysgol Penmaes, are Gold Ambassadors for Powys.
