The Dorset Schools Biathlon competition took place at Leweston School on Sunday 7 Oct with 180 competitors taking part. The Biathlon is a timed trial swim with distances between 25m to 200m and a run with distances of 400m to 1600m depending on age. There are many Biathlon events going on around the country and from the points gained at these events the athletes go onto a ranking list with the top performers going forward to the National Finals in November at Leeds and the National Schools Finals in March at Crystal Palace.

Leweston had some excellent results on Sunday achieving 2 Team Gold (U11, U12 Girls) 2 Silver (U9 Boys, U11 Girls) and 1 Bronze (U12 Girls). In the individual, 2 Gold, 4 Silver and 1 Bronze. These were some excellent team and individual results and Leweston was delighted to see a lot of competitors in the younger age groups taking part in their first biathlon, performing brilliantly and looking forward to their next event.
