BIATHLON CANADA ANNOUNCES NATIONAL TRAINING PROGRAMS FOR 2021-2022 SEASON

Biathlon Canada is excited to announce that 68 athletes from 8 different provinces/territories have been named to one of Biathlon Canada’s National Training Programs for the 2021-2022 season. The four teams are: Senior National Team, Senior Development Program, U24 and U20 Development Programs.

The Senior National Team, comprising of seven athletes, will train together from May to November in Canmore, AB at the Canmore Nordic Centre. Justin Wadsworth, Head Coach, and Pavel Lantsov, Shooting Coach, are working hard heading into the Olympic year, and we are all excited to see what the 2021/2022 season will bring. Sarah Beaudry, Emily Dickson and Jules Burnotte were nominated to the Senior National Team. They have chosen to train with personal coaches and we wish them all the luck with their summer training. Emily and Jules have accepted positions with the Senior Development Program.

Athletes on the Senior Development program, U24 and U20 development programs are listed below. Due to COVID-19, Biathlon Canada made the decision to delay in-person camps until at least August 2021, but we are excited to move forward with educational Zoom webinars for each program with presentations from our national team coaches, physiologist, mental performance consultant, performance dietician and strength experts. As we did last year, we will also be running a virtual Testival- more information to come!

Please visit the Team Selection Explained Document to find out how athletes were selected for each team.

Please note: Biathlon Canada is monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and will only execute components of this program provided it is safe to do so.
