East Midlands Biathlon Qualifier
07 Oct 2014
On a rainy Saturday afternoon, Witham took part in the East Midlands Regional Biathlon Qualifiers in Nottingham. As it was the first time we had entered such an event we took a small team of 6 along to take part in the run and swim event. The children had to complete either a 1600m or 800m run depending on their age category and a 100m or 50m swim. They competed against other schools and children running for clubs who train a lot more often for these events.
Despite this, the team did really well and won some medals along the way – see their results below. We find out on the 15th Dec if these children qualify for the National Schools Biathlon Championships. So fingers crossed until then!!
