Sporting Greats Inspire Leehurst Swan Success at Biathlon

Leehurst Swan | 17 Oct 2017
What an inspirational day for all 16 Leehurst Swan biathletes at the Prior Park School Biathlon held at the University of Bath Sports Training Village. Many of our athletes ended the day in the Top 10 for their ages.

Leehurst Swan athletes swam with huge amounts of determination. For some it was their first time swimming in an Olympic-sized pool, in itself a daunting experience. However, all produced fantastic times putting them in great places before the run event.

Out on the running track left, they ran their hearts out. These performances, combined with their swim times, saw many of our athletes ending the day in the Top 10 for their ages. We now wait for national ranking lists to be collated from results of similar events across the country to see which of our athletes will gain places at the national finals.
