The event took place at the Olympic Park and Aquatic centre, London.

The biathlon, in which 150 entrants competed after coming through a series of qualifying events, consists of a 100m swim and a 1600m run.

The two students, both just 13-years-of-age, did very well, with Xanthe finishing 26th and Simon 37th in their age groups.
