While Neuner was a top medal contender, neither Kuzmina nor Dorin were expected to land on the podium. A number of the world’s top female biathletes, such as Helena Jonsson of Sweden and Andrea Henkel and Kati Wilhem of Germany, struggled as weather slowed the course.
Megan Tandy was the top Canadian, finishing in 46th position. By placing in the top 60, Tandy has qualified for Tuesday’s 10km pursuit.
Canadian teammates Zina Kocher (65th), Rosanna Crawford (72nd) and Megan Imrie (76th) failed to qualify for the 10km pursuit.
This Sunday, February 7th, is the next race of the season series. The event, held at the Falcon Lake venue, is open to all interested athletes. For more information, contact Brian Walters at 204-925-5687

January 16th and 17th was a busy weekend on the trails and range at Falcon Lake. Saturday was a CCSAM sponsored XC ski race which brought out nearly 100 competitors. Despite the lack of snow, the races were a success! In the afternoon, racers were invited to the Biathlon range to try their skills under the supervision of a BAM athlete. The open house was very well attended.
On Sunday, the first race of the BAM season got underway, after the cancellation of the Dec 20th race. Due to the open house on Saturday, there were a large number of new racers and the event turned out to be one of the largest in recent history! Check out the results here
