CONGRATULATIONS to Lindy Davison Y5 and Charlie Brown Y6 who both reached the National Finals of the Schools Biathlon competition which took place on 25th March at Crystal Palace.  Lindy, Charlie and Matthew have all trained hard for this event which involves a 50m swim and a 500m run.  Matthew Pagdin narrowly missed out on the finals which had room for the top 70 athletes in the country in each age group.
Lindy finished a magnificent 5th place in swimming and 13th place in the running with a much improved time since her original run in October. This gives her a National ranking of 7th place in GB for Y5 Biathlon.  Charlie finished a magnificent 9th place in the swimming and 58th in the running, again an improved time since October. Charlie is ranked 36th place in GB for Y6 Biathlon.
Well done to all three of our Biathlon competitors in 2011-2012.  You have done us proud!
This is the second year we have entered this competition. If you are a competitive swimmer you may like to consider joining our Marathon Club to build up stamina for running if you would like to be in our 2012 Biathlon Team!   See the Schools Modern Pentahlon sight here.
