Bridgnorth swimmers shine 

Six members of Northgate Swimming Club represented Team GB at the European Triathle/Biathle Championship in July. They travelled to Germany to compete in either the triathle, a continuous shoot, swim, run, or the biathle, a continuous run, swim, run event.

All six members qualified for the Team GB squad at events held earlier this year by Pentathlon GB. Jack Cole gained European Bronze in his U17 race and gained a Team Gold. Zoe Gilbody (U13) achieved a Team Gold and Cameron Minifie (U19) Team Silver. Dan Galloway had been hoping to compete but had to just support his team mates due to an injury.

It was a proud night for Bridgnorth Athletics Club as five of the athletes also train there, with the other based at Wenlock Olympians. Jack and Louix also qualified for the World Championships at the National Biathle held in July at Salford Quays; Jack took silver and Louix bronze.
