Pro skiers get training ideas off social media -- just ask @brendanjgreen: "You see [the Norwegian guys] on Instagram and it’s like, holy cow, half that stuff I could probably not even do one rep of. So that got me thinking, if I could really, really strengthen the core, maybe I could strengthen the back.” #17questionsfor2017
So as we are winding up our summer training camps, here is a small photo review of some recent events. Thought it appropriate to include a few picturesque shots of the moist foggy, fall weather that captures the beauty of our own Falcon Biathlon Facility. The most recent was a Canada Games ID Camp that wound up a couple of weekends ago at Falcon Trails with coaches Gregg Campbell, Heather Willis and Caleigh Christie. The athletes participated in a team building activity constructing Inukshuks on a picturesque rocky outcrop, alongside plenty of combo training, precision shooting drills, cardio workouts, sauna and yoga. Thanks also to the parent volunteers who cleared trails, chopped trees and fed everyone. We also have a group photo from Falcon's Fall Training Camp and yet more reminder snaps of our fantastic annual trip to the Canmore Biathlon Facility with our former Manitoba coach Rachel Koroscil. Here's also a hearty shoutout to Saskatchewan's Qu'Appelle Valley Nordic Club, who invited Manitoba biathletes to join in their biathlon training camp just after Canmore. The hosts were welcoming and the camp was very well designed. The parent volunteers are currently busy building a new range, clubhouse and a challenging network of trails. Hopefully, in the future we will have the opportunity to get our clubs together for future race and training events" Written by Doug Smith
The moment before the pain...sunshine, summer temperatures and a slushy course made today's national team trials race the hardest race I have done in a long time. It was a fight right from the start! #areyoutoughenough #biathlon #feeltheburn Photo credit: Matthias Ahrens
Thanks to Carsen Campbell for sending a great pic from Canmore where part of Team PEI is taking part in the IBU Trials. Great job and day one, good luck on day two.
Ever wonder what it's like to shoot with your heart pounding and your breath coming in sharp gasp? Well now you can listen to me try to describe it to FasterSkier! http://fasterskier.com/blog/article/nordic-nation-podcast-biathlon-primer-with-rosanna-crawford/
We did a fun interview with Scott Cuickshank from the Calgary Herald, who offers some insight into what it's like for us being able to do biathlon together and the special moments we've been lucky to share with each other. http://calgaryherald.com/sports/cruickshank-calgary-brothers-embracing-biathlon

Considering the rain and heat wave Frozen Thunder weathered last week, racers said the course held up relatively well. "An extra week of skiing at the end of October goes a long way towards being prepared to race well in early December," Matt Gelso of Sun Valley's @xcgoldteam explains #photogallery #notesandquotes

Work is continuing out at QVN today. The trails are being levelled for the upcoming ski season! Our president, Warren, with his mobile office, took one for the team today as he worked beside the crackling fire in the clubhouse. He sure doesn't look too unhappy about that!
