AMANDA LIGHTFOOT ... finished 71st in today's 15km women's individual biathlon in Sochi.

SOUTH Tyneside’s Winter Olympian Amanda Lightfoot rounded off her Games today with a disappointing 71st place in the biathlon.

The former St Wilfrid’s RC schoolgirl took part in the energy-sapping 15km women’s individual event, which combines cross-country skiing with shooting.

Amanda, aged 27, missed five out of her 20 shots to finish 11 minutes and 18 seconds down on the winner, Russia’s Darya Domracheva.

She finished 75th in Tuesday’s 10km pursuit.
