To mark the start of the Olympics, we are looking back in time to archive photos from Fellgate Primary School and Boldon School.
We’ve got sporting heroes who visited Lord Blyton School and South Tyneside College.
We are racing back in time with 9 great sporting scenes from the Shields Gazette archives. Take a look and then get in touch with your own memories.
1. Jumping back to 2016
Long jumper Chris Tomlinson, who competed at the 2004, 2008 and 2012 Olympics, visited South Tyneside College 5 years ago. Did you get to meet him?

2. Time for a parade in Fellgate in 2009
Fellgate Primary School pupils held their own walk complete with the torch they made themselves as their special tribute to the Olympics. This one takes us back 12 years. Does it bring back great memories?
3. They did so well at Ashley Primary
Ashley Primary School pupils received their records of achievement in 2007 from former pupil and swimmer Chris Cook who competed at the 2004 Olympics. Were you among them and what do you remember about that day?
4. So creative in South Shields
Key Stage 3 co-ordinator John Bennett got a helping hand from pupils from Monkton Junior School as they held a T-shirt making tribute to the Olympics at South Shields Community School in 2008.
