We have 3 new Australian biathletes on the IBU Cup Circuit this trimester. Trimester 2 commenced with yesterday's Sprint Race at Martello, Italy with seasoned biathlete, Daniel Walker from Sydney and our first-timers, Jeremy Flanagan, Sabrina Howell and Jill Colebourn. This is the first time in many years that Australia has fielded a team of 2 Men and 2 Women and is the result of focus by the National Federation to continue to build depth of competitors and as well a program for High Performance Athletes.
Results for our novices was very encouraging with Daniel Walker qualifying to proceed to Trimester 3. Well done, Dan, Jeremy, Jill and Sabby!
