At the age of ten, Laura Leyburn suffered an attack of polio and, although she recovered physically, she was afraid to try to walk with-out the aid of a stick. However, Miss Driver, Laura’s headmistress, not only persuaded her to walk unaided, but to take up athletics as well! Now, at 16, Laura is an up-and-coming hurdler and being coached by Mr Sampson, secretary of the Stirton Athletic Club. For winter training they have the use of a hangar at a Royal Air Force base.
