European silver for Steph

Biathle Portugal July2015 033After securing her place on the GB Biathle squad in May, Steph Cummins can now add a European silver medal to her collection after a fantastic race at the European Championships in Setubal, Portgual last weekend.

Despite temperatures averaging 30°C, Steph completed the distance (a continuous 1K run, 200m open water swim and 1K run) in 9:56.06, just nine seconds behind fellow GB competitor Alexandra Withey. Portugal took bronze.

Steph’s placing means she has automatically qualified to compete in the World Biathle Championships which are due to be held in Batumi, Georgia in September.

Huge congratulations to Steph!
