FOLLOWING last week’s article and James and Alex Cowburn, AllStars has learned of another Blackpool girl who will be representing Great Britain at the Biathle World Tour event in Munich later this month.

Grace Webster, a year five pupil from Arnold School, is a further member of the team coached by Luke Helm to achieve the GB qualifying times.

Grace won silver at her first attempt at the event in Fleetwood, then won her second in Coventry.

The sport involves a 50m swim sandwiched between two 500m runs.

Grace was taught to swim by Gary Cousins at the Olympian School of Swimming.

She is also looking forward to a second world tour event in Italy, and is a keen hockey player who dreams of playing for England.
