Young athletes score success

Dan and Elle

Daniel Galloway of Bridgnorth and Elle Humphries of Much Wenlock both appeared at the European Biathle Championships in Setubal, Portugal in July.

Daniel triumphed in his final in the 11/12 year age group, winning by a clear nine seconds, while Elle came ninth in her age group.

A biathle is a continuous run-swim-run event, and there were several days of training prior to the qualifying heats.

The finals featured 16 qualifying athletes; Daniel’s final included competitors from seven other countries. Daniel, a pupil at Castlefields Primary School, and Elle, who attends William Brookes School, both currently train with Northgate Swimming Club and Bridgnorth Athletics Club.
