Last weekend was the first hit out for Australian Biathlon National Senior and Development Team athletes for the 2015/16 Season.
While Daniel Walker was battling challenging conditions at IBU Cup 1 at Idre, SWE, four of the Team were having their first hit out in the Swiss Cup at Realp/Altermatt, SUI. Walker was coached by Nick Almoukov, with Luca Bormolini coaching the other athletes.
Every athlete at the Swiss events achieved a qual time for either the National Senior Team, and/or Youth/Junior World Championships 25 Jan-2 Feb 2016, ROU.
Well done to Damon, Jill, Jeremy and in particular to Darcie, who won her event ahead of 14 Swiss participants, looking good for Lillehammer WYOG 2016!
