Who is Katy McLean?
Katy McLean is the 30 year old athlete taking on the Rio Olympics representing Great Britain playing rugby... what does she have to say to young women?
"I started in a very small town in South Shields that lots of people have never heard of, playing a sport that girls didn't play. It was a sport for men, and women didn't do it. I'd like [my former students] to take away that you can do whatever you set your mind to -- it makes no difference who you are, where you're from or your family background, as long as you're prepared to work hard and not back down. I really don't care what people think."
