Spring Fun in the Sun

John and Murray skied Crystal Rim this afternoon. They started out from the yellow gate.  Conditions varied from full-on one skate to gingerly working around some deadfall.  By all accounts, it was a great outing!  Fortune favours the Brave, so..go for it!  And remember your sunscreen!

Love the ski shorts Murray!

Congratulations to Colton, Danica, Kira, Makenna and Natalie for being nominated to the Biathlon BC Development Squad and to Rory for being nominated to the Biathlon BC Talent Squad.  It is quite an accomplishment to have all six of our race team members making it onto the provincial squads!  It takes a village to support an athlete, so thanks also to all the coaches, families and the Telemark community for continuing to support these aspiring young athletes!

Biathlon Season Windup

Thanks to Coach Chris and Murray for organizing our final event of the season.  In spite of Whistler-like conditions (rain, sleet, fog, wet snow), everyone had a great time doing the biathlon balloon relay race.  There is still a TON of snow up at Telemark, so take advantage of spring skiing conditions as much as you can.  A few pictures are below – there are more in the photo album.

Lots of great results in the Relay event at Nationals!

Jasper and Julia teamed up with Sarah Beaudry to place third and as first and second were both from Alberta, they won the Silver in the Men/Women relay!  Way to go!

Colton teamed up with Kaede and Thomas and placed a solid 6th in the youth men/women category, second of the BC teams (the other BC team finished 4th and claimed the bronze medal).

Natalie teamed up with Ethan and Cole, and they rocked the course to finish 1st, winning the Gold!  Danica raced with Emmanuel and Joe, placing 3rd but no medal as they were the second BC Team.  Kira raced on an “unofficial team” with Claire and Linnea to finish first in the unofficial category.

Great results everyone!  Things wrap up tomorrow with the final race, the Individual.  Good luck to all!

Another day, another race…

Julia led the way for Telemark today, with a second place finish!  Jasper finished in 12th, Natalie placed 5th, Danica 10th, Kira 17th and Colton 18th.   Colton had a difficult day at the range, but when you leave your last shooting bout at the back of the pack and then pass 7 or 8 competitors, that isn’t so bad!

Friday is a rest day, then Relays on Saturday and Individuals on Sunday.  Go Team BC!
