>2015 Regional Tetrathlon Report

Area 9 Competitors help Central England to two 4th Places at the Senior Regional Tetrathlon – 8/9 August 2015


As last year, the 2015 Senior Regional Tetrathlon competition was held at Aylesford cross country centre, Melton Mowbray, and the Meres Leisure Centre, Grantham. There were an increased number of competitors this year (36 boys and 81 girls) from all corners of the UK and Eire. Changes to both the running and riding courses really made for a testing event, but the standard of competition remained extremely high with 9 boys and 20 girls scoring over 4,000 points. Luckily, this year, the weather was good throughout, which made the camping and social side of Tetrathlon all the more enjoyable.


Central England fielded 1 boys’ team, 3 girls’ teams and 2 individual girls. All our competitors put in the maximum effort and there were some great performances over the weekend. The boys’ team finished in fourth place and the girls’ teams finished 4th (Gold), 6th (Green) and 10th (Blue). Individual highlights were:


6th Individual Girl – Hannah Anderson

10th Individual Boy – Ollie Hall

Best Boys’ Shoot – Harry Stevens

Clear Rounds X-C:


Ollie Hall

Greg Hall

Freddie Ryde

Jack Church

Alice Harper

Although not part of the official competition, the swimming relay is an eagerly anticipated and fiercely contested highlight of the weekend. Run as a mixed medley relay, the Central England swimmers proved invincible, the winning team being:


Sammy Bousfield – Backstroke

Jack Church – Breastroke

Ollie Hall – Butterfly

Alice Ward – Front Crawl


Apart from these individual highlights, every Central England competitor put in a huge effort and contributed to the Central Region’s great spirit and excellent performance. The 22 Central competitors were:

>Area 9 Represented at Royal Windsor Tetrathlon


Many congratulations to Arthur Townend (Ledbury) who was the Area 9 representative on the Central England Tetrathlon Team at the Royal Windsor Horse Show on 16/17 May.  Central England finished 4th out of the 8 regions, unfortunately losing 3rd place to the East of England by just 12 points out of 13,500 and 270 points behind the winners, Northern England.  Arthur finished 11th individual, and had the satisfaction of a clear round within the time in the riding.  A great experience and a great performance.  Well done!
