Biathlon – Event #1 for the new season

Only two Union biathletes made the journey to Port Elizabeth to compete in the 1st event of the 2018 / 2019 season. Hannah Bodenstein participated in her first biathlon, and did well to place 7th in her age group with 1799 points, while Drew Dobinson placed 6th in the same age group, with 1885 points. Both girls did surprisingly well in the swim portion of the event, despite the long layoff over the winter season, but will be looking to improve substantially on their run times for the next meeting in two weeks’ time.
The Annual EP Biathlon prize giving was held earlier in the year, and Cameron Muir received the following awards in his absence:
• His EP badge – which is awarded to athletes who are selected for the EP “A” team for 5 consecutive years
• And the trophy for dedication and performance in the u/19 category.
Congratulations to Cameron on his selection for these awards.
