    Yes, I saw Lowell Bailey won the 20k race. First American to ever win a biathlon world championship and I think the first time ever on the podium. He hit 20 out of 20 and won by only 3 seconds. A pretty hard fought race.

    I just figured no one cared and was going to let this thread die...

    I know I'm the only one here interested, but I'll post this picture to humor myself.

    No snow here yet, so I combined some mountain bike riding and shooting yesterday.

    Oh, we're interested. I just think it's awesome. I know quite a few skiiers living in MN but I don't think I know any biathletes. :thumb
