The Royal Logistic Corps Sergeant says she is still keen to continue competing:
“I’m not ready to stop just yet. As you can see I’m still in the top so I’m looking forward to training again and trying to make a third Olympics.”
Although Biathlon can be a gruelling event, Sergeant Lightfoot says she is constantly trying to improve: "You feel the pain but then it’s like the euphoria feeling after you’ve done the race... and you’re like 'yes!'
"You know I’ve just had the best race out there."
At the most recent British Biathlon Championships, less than a fifth of the military competitors were women.
Britain currently has no women's Biathlon team, something Amanda wants to change:
"Some females out here are doing quite good so hopefully we can bring them up and create a team again for Great Britain.”
