Junior Boys’ British Schools Biathlon Qualifiers Success
Friday, 13 November 2009
Bolton School Junior Boys from Years 5 and 6 took part in the British Schools Biathlon regional qualifiers, to compete for a place in the national final in March.
The boys completed a 50m swim which they had to finish within the 40 second time limit, and a 500m run, where they all easily beat the recommended time of 2 minutes 30 seconds.
Each Year group was split into teams, and it was success for both Bolton School teams as the Year 5 team gained 1st place overall, and the Year 6 team achieved 2nd place overall, both receiving winners medals. Individually, the boys put in some excellent performances gaining individual winners trophies- Year 5's Harvey Haworth gained 2nd place in his age group, Harrison Barker-Smith was 3rd, and Guy Haworth was 5th. In Year 6 David Price also gained a trophy for 4th place, Elliot Makin was 7th, Thomas Heatherington 10th and Bill Moores 16th.
The boys will now wait to discover who has qualified for the National finals to be held in Aldershot once all the qualifiers have been completed.
