What are you looking forward to most this season?

  • Having the chance to visit new venues and the opportunity to set new personal bests!

What do you like the most about biathlon?

  • The variation in the results sheet, even within a weekend of racing! There are so many variables involved in this unique sport… it takes more than being the fittest person in the category to win- you have to be able to execute so many other skills [under a lot of pressure] as well.

If you were not a full-time athlete, what would you be doing?

  • I’ve always liked the idea of being a first responder- it is certainly a career option that I may pursue post-biathlon!
