Biathlon BC Champs

It was a tough weekend racing with wind, rain, sleet, drizzle, wet snow… the usual Whistler Olympic Park conditions, as you never know what you’ll get.  Everyone tried really hard to overcome the soft snow conditions and difficult zeroing (we even had our target paper fall off the stand halfway through our zero!).

Best result was a first place finish by Natalie in the Junior Girls Sprint race, well done Natalie!  There were only 11 clean rounds of shooting on Saturday in the 74 competitors in the Junior and older categories – and Natalie and Colton bagged two of those  (which means there were an awful lot of misses out there).

Sunday brought more unsettled weather, and Jonah and Natalie managed one clean round of shooting each.  Well done team on struggling through a difficult weekend!
