|Bishop Burton College hosts College Sports Extravaganza||Friday, 1st Nov 2013||Ashley Quinlan||
On the 23rd October, Bishop Burton College played host to a College Extravaganza organised by Pentathlon GB and supported by the British College Sport. The event was a resounding success, and benefited from support from the Equine and Sports Department at the college.
During the day students from Bishop Burton, Shipley and Greenhead Colleges got to experience three of the five disciplines of the sport of Modern Pentathlon. They received expert coaching in the shooting, fencing and equestrian elements as well as receiving a tour of some of the facilities on campus. To end the day, the students took part in a combine event competition. The combine event concludes the full five-event Modern Pentathlon with a shoot and run.
Rachael Hares, Development Officer for the North (Pentathlon GB) said, “All the students showed an excellent attitude to the day and were disciplined and focused. I would like to thank Bishop Burton for their involvement in the day and I look forward to building on this and looking to host future events for Colleges in the area.”
Damien Butters of Shipley College seconded this statement, commenting, “I just wanted to say a big thank you again for organising today's activities. The students had a brilliant time. They are really looking forward to the [forthcoming] summer events.”
If there are any colleges who are interested in receiving information about future events, or would like to know how to get involved in Modern Pentathlon please contact Rachael Hares: firstname.lastname@example.org 07590444372.
