On 19th October Grace Nolan, one of our swimmers, competed in the West Midlands Regional Biathlon Championships under 10 age group at Tudor Grange Academy in Solihull. In a very competitive field Grace managed to achieve an impressive 3rd place and a points total of 2372, placing her in 10th position out of 304 in the British Modern Biathlon Championships ranking list.
This result secured Grace an automatic qualifying place for the British Modern Biathlon Championships in Solihull on 29th November, where she competed as an independent athlete. At the event Grace improved her 800m run time by 6 seconds finishing in 2.51 and her 50m swim time by 2 seconds clocking 39.75. This result gave Grace a total points score of 2510 and 5th place overall.
Grace has also qualified for the British Schools Modern Biathlon Championships at the Olympic Park Aquatics centre in London next March, where she will represent her school.
Well done to Grace from all of us at TSC!
