Biathlon: Zoe wins a place at Olympic Park nationals

Congratulations to Zoe Brickley, year 9, who finished 22nd nationally in the U14 British Modern Biathlon Championships at the weekend, achieving 26th place in the swim and 17th in the run. Zoe previously achieved a fantastic 3rd place in the West Midlands Schools’ Biathlon Championships in Solihull in November. After a strong performance in the pool, finishing 5th, Zoe put in an exceptionally strong and determined run to record the fastest time on foot and hence overall third. This performance has ensured qualification for the British Championships at the Olympic Park, London, in March 2015. Zoe’s performance was made even more incredible by the fact she competed only the day after the West Midland Cross-Country trials. Well done Zoe and good luck at the Olympic Park.
