This weekend the boys from years 4-8 took part in the South East Regional Biathlon. We competed at four different age groups with U10, U11 and U12’s all having to swim for 50m and run for 800m. Whereas the U13’s swim for 100m and run for 1600m, points are awarded for each event and combined to determine the overall standings.
The boys did exceptionally well and won team gold at U10, U11 and U13. We also won Silver in the U12’s against a very strong Whitgift team. Individually we had six boys coming in the top six and winning individual medals, Elias Azlen (2nd), Sebastian Thurlow and James Rates (4th), Daniel Harrison and James Barnes (5th).
This competition leads on to the National Schools Biathlon Finals in March 2018 and with such as strong performance we are hopeful that all the boys will qualify.
