February 2020 Half Term- Training Opportunity in Germany

Pentathlon Hereford are planning to go for training and a competition in Berlin with the German youth pentathletes over the period of 19/23 February 2020, and the opportunity is being opened up to pentathletes from Yorkshire. The details are as follows:

Flights will be from London Heathrow to Berlin Tegel airport , which is about twenty minutes from where the competition is due to take place at the (1936) Olympic Stadium. The accommodation will also be here.
Accommodation and the competition will be at the (1936) Olympic Stadium.
The format is a youth tetrathlon competition taking place over two days. The swim is in an indoor 25 metre six lane pool, with the fencing taking place in the salle next door to the pool. There are ten metal fencing pistes on which the competition takes place. They use the latest electronic laser range which was used this year for their big national 100 competition that was televised live in August this year.
There will be competitors from Berlin and also their other centre at Potsdam, in total over 100 competitors, so there will be something for all youth ages. It is a well organised and run competition, as well as being very friendly. It is a fantastic chance for athletes to get good competition experience, but they should be able to fence.
Athletes have been invited to train before hand for a couple of days so the intention is to travel out on Wednesday 19th and return on Sunday 23rd February. The competition finishes at about lunch time Sunday in plenty of time to get the evening flight back from Berlin.
The cost for five days food, accommodation and training as well as the competition will be £300 plus flights which the athletes would need to book individually.

Bernie Moss will be the travelling coach and Rachel Wreyford will be the team manager.

If anyone from Yorkshire is interested, please contact Steve Hood.
