Following her selection into the GB Team in the summer, Gabi travelled to Spain last week to compete in the 2017 World Biathle-Triathle Championships. The Biathle event is a continuous run-swim-run event organised and supported modern pentathlon GB, with Triathle including shooting!! More than 500 athletes from 30 countries took part in thrilling competitions across four days. The first day of racing saw Gabi and her relay partner finish 4th in the U13 mixed relay! This was beyond their expectations, and raised hopes for their chances of success later in the week. The individual U13 girls’ race didn’t disappoint… Gabi finished 8th overall, and was the 2nd British girl over the line!! A strong finish from the third GB girl secured a team SILVER medal, behind South Africa in first, with Egypt coming in third place. A magical podium experience, a (heavy) silver medal and memories to last a lifetime! Good luck, Gabi, on the next leg of the adventure… World Laser Run Championships (an event combining running and shooting) in Cape Town in a couple of weeks!!! Watch this space!
Well done Gabi!
