The 2016 Australian Biathlon Championships were the most successful ever, with double the number of racers in 2014, and 40% higher than 2015, which was itself a record year.
Racers took part in over 20 different age groups/categories, including Laser biathlon events for those aged Under 12.
We were very pleased to welcome participants who travelled from Canada, Italy, UK and USA this season.
Stand out performance for these Championships was Damon Morton, in the blue ribbon Open Class. In 2014 and 2015 Damon won all Victorian and Australian Men Open Championship races. Damon has followed up in 2016 with a clean sweep of first place in all Men Open Class races.
