St John’s girls represent Team GB

St John’s has congratulated two pupils for gaining a Team GB honour during the summer holidays.

Martha Hansford (Upper Fifth, Gloucester) and new pupil Charlotte Cole (Lower Sixth, South) were selected to compete in the European Biathle and Triathle Championships in Portugal.

Taking place in July, the girls excelled in both the Biathle, a continuous run swim run event, and the Triathle, a continuous swim, run, shoot. Despite strong international competition and difficult conditions of up to 40C heat, both girls reached the finals and finished high up in the field. Charlotte finished 11th overall and Martha 12th.

Charlotte has joined the St John’s Sixth Form this term, and both girls look forward to the new opportunity of training together over the coming months.
