A talented pupil from Saint Felix School, Southwold, has been called up to the team which will represent the East of England in the national tetrathlon competition.

Alice Ward, 13, has been named as part of the team of three which will travel to Windsor later this year. Tetrathlon is a combination of four disciplines - running, riding, swimming and shooting, and has three age groups - mini, junior and senior.

The three members of the East of England team - two girls, one boy - were picked after a series of junior competitions in which they achieved the highest points.

A delighted Alice said: “I'm really happy to have been picked for the team - my parents received an email telling them that I had made it in, and then they told me.

“I really hope we win and become the best in the UK. If we did, it could mean that we could go to the Olympics in the future, which would be amazing.”
