Harry Pearson and Lewis Hebden, who are pupils at Martongate School, have qualified for the British Schools Modern Biathlon Championships.

The competition is to be held at the London Aquatics Centre in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

This event will be the first one to be staged at this Olympic venue when it opens to the public in April.

Both boys qualified because of their performances during earlier rounds.

Pearson was announced as the Bridlington Free Press Junior Sports Person of the Year earlier this month.
