Results from today's Nor Am pursuit race in Lake Placid. A big thank you to everyone who came out this weekend!
@lowellcbailey finishes world champs with his fourth top 6. “It’s surreal to be sixth. I mean, a fourth, a sixth, a first, and a sixth… It’s amazing, it’s really just amazing. It’s hard putting it into words.”
EVENT RELOCATION - the organizing committee of the Prince George Canadian Nationals & North American Biathlon Championships is very disappointed to announce that due to snow melt and unpredictable weather conditions the event is being relocated to Canmore, Alberta. Thank you so much to Biathlon Alberta for stepping up to ensure that this competition goes ahead March 6-12th. A huge, huge thank you to the many volunteers who had committed to assisting with the event as well as the terrific competition and organizing committee members who have given so much of their time to plan and prepare. We're so grateful to our many sponsors who have so generously supported us.
It has been a tremendous World Championships for Lowell Bailey. The American finished Hochfilzen2017 with another strong result, this time coming 6th in the mass start - his 4th Top6 result this fortnight. 📹
Germany’s Simon Schempp closed the 2017 IBU World Championships with his first-ever IBU World Championships medal, notably the Gold medal in the men’s mass start. Schempp, shooting clean took control in the last loop to cruise home unchallenged in 35:38.3. Defending mass start Gold medalist Johannes Thingnes Boe of Norway won the Silver medal, with one penalty, 9 seconds back. Austria’s Simon Eder, also shooting clean claimed the Bronze medal, 10.1 seconds back.
Nobody in the world shot faster than Susan Dunklee in the World Championships mass start, and she left the shooting range in first place time after time. Eventually, she claimed silver, the first medal ever won by a U.S. woman in biathlon. "Nobody works harder than she does - she really deserves this and every other victory that she gets,” said teammate Clare Egan, who finished 24th. The Dunklee interview, click here!
Germany’s Laura Dahlmeier shot clean to win the women’s mass start in 33:13.3 this morning, claiming her record-setting fifth Gold medal of these IBU World Championships. Dahlmeier took control in the final kilometer, passing Susan Dunklee of the USA who won her first-ever medal, Silver also with clean shooting, 4.6 seconds back. The Bronze medal went to fast-finishing Kaisa Mäkäräinen of Finland, with one penalty, 20.1 seconds back.

Russia wins men's relay at IBU World Champs, France 2nd, Austria 3rd, and U.S. 7th in #Hochfilzen. 1 more day to go! #racerundown
With 13 spare rounds apiece, it just wasn't the right day for either the U.S. or Canadian women in the World Championships relay. Germany on the other hand? The pre-race favorites weathered a change from hot sun to squalling snowstorm with no problem and claimed team gold.
US author J.J Hensley has a book coming out about biathlon. Good timing! https://hensleybooks.wordpress.com/2017/02/17/the-coolest-sport-you-arent-watching/
Ein Tag für die Geschichtsbücher und ihr seid Teil davon gewesen....A day for the history books, thanks Lowell Bailey and thanks to the thousands of fans out there! #hochfilzen2017 #whataday
BREAKING! @lowellcbailey becomes first American biathlete to win a World Championship gold. "This is the most perfect day of my career,” he said. #racerundown
After shooting a perfect 20-for-20, Lowell Bailey still had to crush four more kilometers of race course if he wanted to win gold. The finish line felt like it would never come: "Every hundred meters it was a sprint. Every hundred meters was ‘go as hard as you can for this hundred meters, and then when you get to the end of that hundred meters, go as hard as you can and just keep doing that'." Bailey eked out a 3.3-second win to become the first American biathlete ever to win gold at World Championships. Here's the interview.
Lowell Bailey finished fourth in the sprint, and slipped from third to sixth in the last loop of the pursuit; today he made up for that with a Gold medal.#hochfilzen2017
America First! Lowell Bailey schafft die Sensation in Hochfilzen und wird im Einzel Weltmeister. Platz 2 geht an Ondřej Moravec. Martin Fourcade holt sich Bronze. Erik Lesser (Offizielle Fanpage) schnappt sich einen hervorragenden 4. Platz
