SHE had a taste of Olympic glory.
And former Dalton School pupil Mehreen Akhtar has returned to talk about her experience.
Mehreen who was a pupil in the visual impairment unit at Dalton School from age three to 11 returned as a guest at a special assembly on the Olympics.
The pupils in the unit presented facts about the Olympics, dressed in ancient robes and reenacted the torch-lighting ceremony.
Mehreen spoke to the whole school about being chosen as torch bearer and showed everyone her tracksuit.
She took part in the run near Tadcaster on June 19.
Her dad ran with her.
Kay Shanahan, teacher in charge of the unit at Dalton said:
“Mehreen is a super role model for her fellow pupils with a visual impairment.
“She is an inspiration to all.”
