Stratford siblings savour biathlon glory

Liam Moakes 1st Nov, 2016

STRATFORD-based brother and sister Seb and Isabelle Hopper ran and swam to victory in the East Midlands Regional Biathlon Championships at Bingham Leisure Centre in Nottingham.

The biathlon is a multi-sport event comprising the swimming and running events from the five in the modern pentathlon.

The pair are keen participants in this sport as they are each members of both Stratford Athletic and Stratford Sharks Swimming clubs.

After the running stage Seb was in first place and Isabelle second in their age groups after solid runs.

Seb cemented his first place with a good swim and Isabelle set a new personal best in her swim to move herself into first place.
