Former Hillel student Samantha Majendie-Albert came back to share her Olympic experiences with today's students during an assembly. She represented Jamaica in the equestrian eventing competitions in the Beijing Olympics this summer. Accompanying her were her two sons, her mother and sister. She paused to have a photo with some of Hillel's competing equestrians. The assembly watched a DVD illustrating the 3-part sport, saw Samantha ride in dressage, show jumping and cross-country events and asked her questions about her achievements and feelings. Many thanks to Samantha, and good luck for London in 2012!
