Winning Streak at Biathlon
14 October 2016
On Sunday 9 October, six girls and their supporters travelled to Tudor Grange in Solihull for the West Midlands Regional Biathlon Championships. The girls from Years 5 and 6 had to complete a 50 metre swim followed by an 800 metre run.
The girls all swam very well despite being in different heats, with many achieving personal best times. After a break for lunch and an opportunity to take a turn on the spin cycles the girls headed for the track. Two laps of the track is gruelling but the girls ran well.
The day ended with the medal ceremony. We were delighted to learn that the U11 team of Hannah, Rellie and Daisy were the winning team in their age group as were the U12 team of Audrey, Jemima and Julia. The two teams have qualified for the National Schools Biathlon to be held at Crystal Palace in March.
Congratulations to our Biathletes.
