Prior Park Schools Biathlon

450 competitors from 44 schools participated in our Schools' Biathlon last Friday. The event took place up at the University of Bath's Sports Village using the elite facilities of the track and pool.

The British Modern Biathlon series of competitions are a great starting point for athletes wishing to get involved in an exciting multi-discipline sport. It consists of a separate swim and run for all age groups with the distances depending on the competitor's age.

There were some fantastic performances by our students and, indeed, our sports leaders who helped on the day.

We were honoured to have Olympians Jamie Cooke, Joe Choong and Jo Muir on hand to present the children with their medals.
