European medals for Prep pupil

Plymouth College Prep School’€™s Oliver Smart returns from European Biathle Championships and World Cup Tour in Portugal with two medals

Representing Great Britain, Oliver, 11, who has now started at Plymouth College’s Senior School, was one of the youngest competitors in the continuous run/swim/run event. With a field of 18 in his age category from countries including Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Portugal and Russia, he won a silver medal in the individual Youth D event and gold in the team competition.

This follows a successful 12 months in which Oliver has become the GB Modern Biathlon Champion and runner up in the British Schools Modern Biathlon Championships.

Oliver said: ‘This was a tough competition and particularly difficult with the swim in a strong tidal current. However, I’m pleased with how I performed and I hope to compete in the European Championships and World Cup Tour again next year.’
