Cheltenham Prep swimming and running experts placed third
overall in a competitive Aquathlon event.
The invitational competition, which was hosted at Malvern
College, attracted extremely impressive and experienced Aquathletes from across
the region. The Prep’s team of four girls and four boys, in an U11 and an U13
age group, all had to swim 100m in the pool followed immediately by an 800m
run. Many of the races were lost and won in the transition area – some being
much faster than others at squeezing wet feet into trainers in a hurry!
The Cheltenham Prep competitors all did the school proud
in their endeavour, and although we did not have any individual placings we
were very excited to find out that we had come third overall as a school team
(out of twelve schools in attendance). A true team effort - well done!
