Radley junior athlete Cici Huepfl was selected to race for the GB U11 team in the World Biathle Championships in St Petersburg Florida over half term. Biathle is a continuous run-swim-run event which involves an open water swim. The event was a unique experience and it was inspiring to join a large GB team who made the trip over and who ranged in age from 9 to 70!
Cici did spectacularly well, coming 2nd in her age group, behind GB team mate Emily; she had to fight off strong competition from two South African athletes to claim her silver medal. GB also took team gold ahead of Guatemala.
The event concluded with a closing party where athletes from all over the world had the chance to meet each other, enjoying trading T shirts and swim caps, and having lots of fun together.
