Three girls from the Royal High School Bath competed in the high-profile Pentathlon GB’s Modern British Biathlon Championships at Solihull on Saturday 25th November.

Emily Jones and Sophie Jones in year 6 and Lottie Silverton in year 7 at the school completed a 50m swim and an 800m run in a competitive field which showcased the high level of young talent currently engaged in biathlon in the UK.

The girls competed with real determination in tough races. Lottie finished 49th overall, Emily made it to 26th place and Sophie Jones came an impressive 8th. Junior School PE co-ordinator Mrs Zoe Banks said ‘we are incredibly proud of the girls who have qualified for the National Championships in March at Crystal Palace as well as gaining an impressive Silver medal as a team’.
