Some Longtime BAM Athletes Are Moving On

First off, Good luck to our Biathlon Manitoba athletes and Masters athletes as we edge ever closer to the 2017-18 race season. Training is ramping up and I’m sure snow is on many an athlete’s mind.

Alas, Some of our younger athletes (not so young anymore) who have represented Manitoba on the Biathlon Race Team for many years have moved on to expand their horizons. We wish them all the best on their new endeavours! Here they are.

Bowen LeMay of RRNS&B is studying Aerospace Engineering at Carleton University in Ottawa and hopes to ski with the University Nordic team

Emily Davidson of Birch Mountain Sports is currently overseas in an exchange program in Finland.
