Hi I'm Natalie and welcome to Talking Sport.
Today we are hearing about a hurdler from Trindad and Tobago and
learning the phrases 'right attitude' and 'role model'.
For many athletes, school is where they first start their sport and
that is true for hurdler, Jehue Gordon.
Jehue is one of best 400m hurdlers in his country, Trindad and
Tobago.
Let's hear from BBC reporter Laura Trevelyan who has been to meet
Jehue and visit his school where it all started.
Listen for the phrases right attitude and role model.

It all started in this classroom at Belmont Boys' Secondary School
where Jehue learnt to hurdle under the watchful eye of his teacher,
Albert King, who immediately noticed his pupil's potential. As well
as his natural ability, Mr King could see that Jehue had the right
attitude. Jehue excelled in the classroom as well as on the track.
This school made him what he is and now he's a role model for all
the boys here.

Having the right attitude means you have a good way of thinking
and looking at things.
Mr King could see that Jehue had the right attitude.
We heard that Jehue is now a role model.
A role model is a person who is admired for what they have done
and sets a good example for others to follow.
Now he's a role model for all the boys here.
Well, we have learnt the phrases right attitude and role model. Now
