I need help to be able to represent Great Britain for the first time at the World Biathle Champs at Georgia in September 2015.
About the project
My name is Sarah and I am 14 years old. I have the opportunity to represent Great Britain at the World Biathle Championships which are being held in Georgia in September 2015.
I did my first biathle in Weymouth last year and came 3rd. This was race 6 of the British Biathle series and part of the 2014 World Tour.
As one girl said to me afterwards, 'I turned up in my little snowman costume and beat some of the GB Squad.' This year I'd like to be competing alongside them.
So far in 2015 I have won the south west champs and won the two British Biathle races I have competed in. Race one at Milfield school and race three at Cheltenham Lido. I would really like to be able to compete for Great Britain but can't without your help.
I am a member of Dorset Pentathletes and have also just joined a newly formed club in my home city of Bath. At Bath Pentathletes I am also learning to shoot as biathle falls under the umbrella of Pentathlon GB, which is an Olympic sport. I am also a member of Team Bath AC and Bradford on Avon swimming club which are obviously both great helps for biathle.
I just love to compete and be outdoors and fit and healthy. When we lived in Cornwall I was a member of Portreath Surf Lifesaving club and was lucky enough to compete on the beach at national level.
I would love to now be able to take advantage of all the training and hard work (and a lot of fun too) and be able to get to Georgia to represent Great Britain.
The money would go on flights and accomodation ( I have to take a chaperone too) as well as entry fees and travel insurance. Some of the team kit is supplied but some has to be purchased.
Thank you for your support.
