Biathlon Team at Canada Winter Games

It takes four years to train towards Canada Winter Games and Aria MacDonald and Madi Taljaard worked hard to represent Team Nova Scotia in Red Deer, Alberta this February. Also included in the Nova Scotia Biathlon team was Claire Miner, a Grade 11 student from Horton High School.

The fact that we had virtually no snow in Nova Scotia until this week, and again no range to shoot at, our girls persevered with Atlantic Provincial competitions and dry firing in the meantime to place at CWG just below half the field of 40 female competitors. This was above most of the other Atlantic Provinces. The bitter cold in Red Deer delayed opportune training and pushed most races to the afternoon for the warmest part of the day. There was lots of anticipation and nerves, but fit minds and bodies provided the means to a successful and hard-fought competition for these two strong athletes. The experience was worth it. Competing against a National field is a great opportunity and one that drives desire and determination in a given sport. I have no doubt this has fuelled the intentions and goals for Aria and Madi for next season.

Congratulations to these two dedicated biathletes; you make Nova Scotia proud.
