BRADLEY Sutton pulled off a super result as he took second place in the National Biathlon championship.

The Brighton Hill Community School pupil, pictured left, was ranked fourth nationally going into the competition and scored 2,461 points to finish second overall – and only missed out on top spot by just 15 pentathlon points.

Sutton knocked five seconds off his ranked time in the 200 metres swim plus more seconds off his 1,600 metre run.

The 15-year-old from Hatch Warren has now been selected by the Pentathlon GB Committee to attend the World Class Talent ID Camps for Youth Boys early next year, with a view to getting onto the Pentathlon GB World Class Programme.
