Schools National Biathlon Finals – We Were There!

1600 young athletes qualified from thousands to compete at one of the iconic sporting venues of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. One of our students, Emily, was one of these athletes and recently went to the London Olympic park for the Schools National Biathlon Finals after qualifying at the St Felix trials. Emily had a great day and surpassed her expectations of ‘just going for the experience’, she finished 15th overall out of 54 national finalists in the under 16 girls category. Well done Emily!
