Biathlon pupils qualify for Nationals

Four Lower Fourth pupils took part in the West Midlands Biathlon at Abbey Stadium in Redditch on Saturday 11th January. Despite the cold and wet conditions they all ran well, but they really excelled in the pool. All four were near to reducing, or did reduce, their personal best times.

In the U13 boys event Dan A received the silver medal, and Ben G received the bronze medal and the West Midlands Biathlon ‘Best Swim’ medal. In the U12 boys event, Seth E swam himself into the silver medal place, and in the U12 girls event, Frankie B acquitted herself, gaining several places with an excellent swim.

All the competitors are looking forward to the National Schools’ Biathlon at the end of March when they join with the rest of the team.
