Thursday 9th June 2011 – Hampshire Schools Biathlon

Filed under: Cross Country,PE,Swimming @ 8:02 am

Pentathlon GB hosted the Hampshire Schools Biathlon Relays at The Hart Leisure Centre in Fleet at the end of May which was certainly an event not to be missed in the Bishop’s Waltham Junior sporting calendar. Biathlon Relay is a two discipline event where four team members swim a 4 x 25m freestyle relay and then run a 4 x 400m relay. Nineteen schools from all over Hampshire entered teams from Year 5 and Year 6 and the competition was tough…every team member had to have exceptional ability and show support for each other in both events.

As always, our teams showed great strength, determination and technique and put in superb performances to challenge the best of the Hampshire schools teams. Our year 5 team of Natasha, Abby, Tim and Isabel was placed 5th overall in their age group and our year 6 team of George, Archie, Emily and Lizzie was placed 4th overall in their event. Both teams received medals for being placed in the top six schools in the County.

Well done to all our team members – it was a challenging event and as always, you rose up and met that challenge!
