North West Regional Biathlon Championships
Jenson Gibson competed in the North West Regional Biathlon Championships. For him not to be a member of a running or swimming club it took a lot of courage for him to race. His run was 800m and he came 9th, followed by a 50m swim in which he came 8th, overall in the competition he was 11th.
As always Jacob Gibson also competed, he had a lot to live up to after being 1st in last years competition. Jacob was determined to do his best and he improved upon his time from March in the 1600m run finishing 2nd. He also managed a great PB on his 200m swim in which he came 1st. Again, he managed 1st place overall in the competition. Jacob has automatically qualified to compete at Crystal Palace in March 2018 in the British Schools Biathlon Championships and we will now wait for the ranking list to be published to find out if Jenson is ranked high enough to be invited.
