Strong Start to the Season for School Multi-Sports
It has been a strong start to the term for multi-sport activities, with both King’s College and King’s Hall School enjoying success over the summer season.
Most recently, three pupils from King’s Schools competed in the European Biathle and Triathle Championships, held in Weiden, Germany.
King’s College pupil, Fred Fisher, competed in the Under 17 Boys Triathle, where he finished 12th individually, helping the GB team gain second place overall.
Fred also enjoyed success in the men's event at the Bournemouth Triathlon, where he placed 2nd in the Under 20 category, despite being only fifteen!
Fellow pupil Sam Cobb also competed in the Under 17 category in Weiden, as well as in the Under 17 Triathle Relay, the Under 17 Boys Biathle, and the Under 17 Biathle Relay. He finished fourth in the Triathle as an individual, and was also a part of the winning GB team.
Sam enjoyed further success when he placed fifth in the Biathle, fourth in the Under 17 Biathle, and second, along with his partner, Larissa Hannam, in the Under 17 Mixed Relay.
Furthermore, King’s Hall pupil, Nicolas Du Toit, also took part in the championships, this time in the Under 11 Boys’ Triathle and Under 11 Triathle Relay, where he finished fourth individually, with his GB team taking home the gold.
Along with his partner, Emily Oliver, he also won gold in the Under 11 Mixed Triathle Relay.
Most recently, at Leweston School, Sam won the boys triathle, while King's College pupil, Alice Anderson, came 2nd in the girls event, setting a personal best for the swim element.
Nicolas will now be joined by Sam and Alice at the World Laser Run Qualifiers later this month. Good luck to all!
