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

#FlagDay is about more than commemorating our national flag—it’s a day to reflect on all that #Canada has accomplished as a country.
