The weekend of the 5th and 6th of April was a fantastic one for the Castle Court Biathlon team who attended the National Biathlon Finals held at The Olympic Park in London. This competition coincided with the official opening of The Park to the public.
Saturday saw four Castle Court girls swim 50m and run 800m. Ella was placed 9th in the swim and 29th overall in the Under 11 category, with Freya 47th. Also taking part were Charlotte (U10) and Rachel (U12).
On Sunday, the boys took to the same course. The Castle Court Under 12 boys team of Joshua, Baden and Max came 3rd overall. Lloyd and Freddie did well in the Under 11 category.
Ben had a phenomenal competition in the boys’ Under 13 category. This sees the boys move up to the long course event (100m swim and 1600m run). Ben totally smashed the swim in a time of 59.27, the only one to clock in under the minute. He ran the mile run in 5 minutes 14 seconds, coming 3rd behind the winner by only 3 seconds. His overall points total won by a margin of 121.
Congratulations to everyone who took part in such a prestigious national event.
