After 10+ years of high level racing and 200 World Cup starts, Rosanna is moving on to the next chapter in her life. Here's a short video with some moments…
Well folks, the 2018/19 season is all wrapped up. Had some personal bests, a medal on the IBU Cup, got to race in front of friends and family at the Canmore WC and raced my first senior World Champs. There were some pretty tough days that went along with the great ones, but they helped me realize what I need to work on to be better for next season. Great end to the season racing in Whistler, and fun to look back at how far I've come since I last raced there in 2013. Now time to enjoy home cooked meals, my bed and no flying for the next while!

Canada has had a decent season overall on the IBU World Cup. With veterans Nathan Smith and Brendan Green going into retirement, the Gow Brothers Biathlon have followed steps brilliantly and paced the Canadian squad to 14th place in the nations’ standings. The pair combined for more than 25 top 20 results. Newcomers Jules Burnotte and Aidan Millar will add to the excitement next season. The women's team also saw it’s leader and #1 in the World Cup standings, Rosanna Crawford, Biathlete, call it a day. Emma Lunder finished the season strong and will now take a young squad under her wings. Sarah Beaudry and Megan Bankes are gaining experience and Biathlon Canada’s Female Athlete of the Year, Nadia Moser, is knocking at the door. To wrap up our season coverage, here are comments from some of the WC Team members. Scott Gow, who is as fast to respond as he is on the firing range, goes first. "This season went well. I had some good performances from the beginning to the end of the season, which was good from a consistency standpoint. I also saw an improvement in shooting accuracy and speed so that is another positive. "This summer I'm going to continue improving my shooting speed while maintaining accuracy. I also want to make a bigger push to generate some ski speed and power. I'm still lacking in overall ski speed, but also the very high end, final lap ski speed I'm going to need if I want to make a jump into the next level of performance."
