A teenager from Ivybridge has won a silver medal at the World Biathlete Championships, Travis Bramley picked up second place in Cyprus, and is also the British Champion.
Fourteen-year-old Travis Bramley from Ivybridge competed in the World Biathel championships in Cyprus earlier this month.
Competitors from 25 different countries run, swim and run again, in a real test of stamina.
When he is not competing in events across the world, Travis attends Ivybridge Community College, where he has to balance his training regime with his studies. He said:
Travis does ten hours of swimming a week, and his running and bike sessions take up most of his evenings.
It means time socialising with friends can be limited, but his ambitions for the future are a huge motivation.
With that kind of determination, these may just be the first of many medals brought back to Ivybridge.
