Brothers Sam and Josh Cobb have just returned from another stellar performance at the World Triathle and Biathle Championships in Florida.

The younger of the two, Josh, who joined us in September from Hazlegrove Prep School was competing in the U15 Triathle competition. He finished an incredible 8th place individually and was part of the top GB team that won the team silver.

Sam, who is currently in the Lower Sixth, was competing in both the Biathle and Triathle competitions. He finished 8th individually in the Biathle after a very courageous race in temperatures around 100 degrees Fahrenheit and with 90% humidity. In the Triathle he finished 2nd individually after a superb and very exciting race between him and an Egyptian athlete, and he also helped the U17 GB team to take the team gold.

In total there were 34 different nations competing over the four days.

Prior to heading out the championships, Josh had a very busy end to the half term at the NSEA National Show Jumping Finals in Buckingham. With his Hazlegrove team, he won one class, finishing 2nd individually in another and 2nd with his England team in the Nations Cup.

During the first part of the Michaelmas Term, Sam was a member of the Royal Marines Pringle Trophy team, helping them to lift the main title (the sixth time in the school’s history), as well as five individual trophies. With no rest in sight just yet, Sam is now at Hartpury College taking part in a Pentathlon GB training camp

These two boys are clearly incredibly talented and dedicated athletes, and as ever, we continue to watch their progress, development and success closely.
