On the Blue Peter’s Sport Relief
Special, British skeleton racer Lizzy Yarnold received a gold Blue Peter badge in
honour of her sporting achievements as a Winter Olympics champion!
In the history of the Winter Olympics Great Britain has only ever won 10 golds and in Sochi 2014 Lizzy became the 10th.
After the show Lizzy said ‘it was a complete
surprise to receive a gold Blue Peter badge! Getting a Blue Peter badge
is something you dream of growing up – and to get such a special one that only
a small group of completely inspirational and legendary people have received is
really overwhelming. Thank you so much!’
Gold badges are very rare, Lizzy joins a host of sporting stars that have been awarded this badge including
David Beckham, Jessica Ennis, Tom Daley, Ellie Simmonds, and Sir Chris Hoy.
