On Monday we went to Cambridge Regional College to see Louis Rolfe because he won two medals in the Paralympics in Rio.
Louis won a bronze medal and a gold medal for cycling. Louis is 19 years old who was born with a disability called Cerebral Palsy. This means he is weak on one side of his body.
Louis is a student at Cambridge Regional College. He said that he had a lot of support from the college as they let him go to his races and train for the Paralympics. The College wanted to celebrate Louis' success so they renamed the sports centre the Louis Rolfe Sports Centre .
All the students gathered outside and clapped and cheered for Louis. The Catering staff made a massive cake with a cycling helmet on the top.
Louis made a speech when he opened the Sports Centre – he said that he had achieved his medals through hard work and determination.
We got to meet Louis and he let us wear his medals and we had our photo taken wearing them. This made me feel very happy to see Louis so proud of himself for what he has achieved.
I realised that I was at school with Louis and his sister at Fen Ditton Primary School. I was surprised that the little boy I knew at school had gone on to win medals for his Country in sports.
