World Youth Junior Trials Cancelled
In light of the ongoing increase in COVID-19 cases across Canada and to prioritize the health of our athletes, coaches, volunteers, staff, and communities, Biathlon Canada and the Caledonia Nordic Ski Club Biathlon Organizing Committee have regretfully decided to cancel the Biathlon Canada Selection Trials for IBU World Youth and Junior Championships scheduled for February 1-7, 2021, in Prince George, BC.
The High Performance Working Group (HPWG) continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation in Europe and will make a decision as to whether this tour can proceed in the coming weeks. Should it be safe to host this tour, the HPWG will communicate the specifics for team selection in the near future for the Youth and Junior Championships. Note that a national in-person trials event will not be used for athlete selection.
Biathlon Canada would like to thank the Caledonia Nordic Ski Club Biathlon Organizing Committee for their hard work and professionalism preparing for the event.
