Canada Winter Games June Biathlon Camp

On June 23-24, BAM held a training camp for all potential Canada Winter Games athletes and a successful camp it was. One day included performing strength, speed and agility drills at the Sport For Life complex in Winnipeg, with a second day at Falcon Lake Biathlon Range focusing on shooting, hill running and combination drills. A gruelling, but fantastic weekend! Thanks to Coaches Gregg Campbell and Heather Willis for putting them through the paces.
