On the 25th March 2017, four Kingsbridge Kingfishers swimmers represented their school Kingsbridge Community College at the British School Biathlon championships which was held at Crystal Palace National Sports Stadium.
All swimmers qualified for this event after achieving the necessary qualifying points last September. Samuel Stewart also qualified at this time for the British National biathlon and competed in Solihull in November.

You are all in the top 100 biathletes in Great Britain in your age category - a MASSIVE well done from Kingsbridge Kingfishers!
