Biathlon Canada Announces Staff Changes

Biathlon Canada has announced that as of April 2, 2019, Head Coach, Matthias Ahrens and Operations Coordinator, Marian Harvie have left the organization.

Matthias led the team through two Olympic Winter Games and has had a lasting impact on the national team program. We look forward to building on his legacy as we set our focus on Beijing 2022 and the Games in 2026.

“As National Team Coach/Head Coach, I have provided 14 years of consistent result improvement within the Canadian National Team and will now move on from here. As all the athletes that have grown with me in the system of Biathlon Canada are leaving, so will I. It was a great pleasure seeing those fine young athletes train, grow and improve under my guidance. Over this period we have transformed into a National Team that is now internationally recognized.” Matthias Ahrens stated.

We want to thank Matthias and Marian for their contributions and wish them all the best in their future pursuits.
