Libby’s Biathlon Best


 

Congratulations Libby (Y7) who competed in the National Schools Biathlon Championships last weekend in the U12 division. She came 47th in the UK, ran a personal best of 2.58 in the 800m and improved her swim time as well in the 50m sprint.

Libby had qualified for the national finals last October, when she competed in the County Level championships, coming 1st in the U12 girls’ run and swim events.

The National event at Crystal Palace saw all qualifying athletes from counties across the UK gathered for the competition, and Libby competed against 150 other qualifying athletes in her age group, finishing in the top third. This excellent result reflects her hard work and commitment to her swimming and running.

Chloe (Y5) was also at the event, competing in her age group and performed incredibly well, clocking up a new personal best in the swim where she carved off almost two seconds!
