Freya Stanger, Year 9 student, is pursuing a new venture. In October Freya decided take part in a biathlon and entered the South West Regional Biathlon Championships held at Millfield School.
Freya, already an accomplished swimmer, achieved a personal best time in the 100M freestyle swim in the U14 girls event, following this with a 1600M run. Freya was placed sixth in each section and the combined times were added together and overall Freya was placed 4th in her age group in South West England. Freya qualified for the National Biathlon Championships. On 29th November in Solihull Freya swam even faster with an improved personal best time and also improved her running.
These results gave her a combined score which placed her fourth in her age group nationally. This is quite an amazing performance, particularly as Freya has not undertaken any running training.
Freya has been asked to join the Dorset Pentathletes Club and we look forward to hearing how she gets on.
