Cornwall School Spring Games 2017

Twelve children from our school represented us and the Peninsula Partnership at the Biathlon event at Truro School. It was a fantastic event and there were some amazing althletes competing. The children all had to complete two disciplines: a 200m swim and cross country run. Both times were amalgamated to gain an overall time. When the full results come out we will publish these in the newsletter.

At the opening ceremony we had an inspiring speech from para-athlete David Hill who made his debut at Athens 2004 aged 15 as a swimmer. He retired from swimming in 2012 and joined the British Par-triathlon squad in 2013 and has since become a regular fixture in international competition. We all got to meet him and chat about his life and achievements as he watched us compete all day.
