My biathlon experience : Frankie - Yr. 6

My biathlon experience – Frankie ( Yr. 6 )

On Sunday 26th March my dad and I travelled to the National Sports Centre at Crystal Palace, London, for the national biathlon… and a painfully tiring day ahead. I would be competing against many athletes from around the country.

I had trained hard for several months and then the nerves kicked in. The other competitors and I ran 800m and I could not have run any faster than my body could physically cope with ( I couldn’t lift my arms after the run!). However I came 1st in my heat and 6th in the country at running.

Then it was the swim, 50m in an Olympic sized swimming pool. I came tenth in the country at swimming, which led to my coming 4th in the National Biathlon.

I was delighted it was over and happy that I was in the top six to get a trophy.

This was my biathlon experience.
