TRENT Marchand, a Grade 2 pupil at Highbury Prep School, won gold in the UIPM 2015 Biathlon World Championships which took place in Batumi, Georgia recently. He represented SA proudly in this international event competing in the U8 section where he participated in running and swimming. His talents were noticed at the beginning of the year when he entered a few Mudman events. Since then he has been training more extensively and won the KZN biathlon event and then he came second in the SA Championships. He is certainly a young man to watch and the Highbury extended family are very proud of his incredible achievements.- supplied
