The Wanaka Biathlon Club Championships were held on Sunday 14th August at the biathlon club range at Snow Farm.
Twenty seven keen biathletes aged from 8 upwards took part in the 4.5km Sprint race. Competitors skied a very hilly but fun 1.5km loop, before shooting 5 targets on the 50m club range. Those unlucky to miss a target had to ski an extra 100m penalty loop for each miss, ensuring a very focused group of athletes!
The club race was won by Beijing Olympian Campbell Wright, with our younger club members enjoying a closely fought U18 title.
Next event is the NZ Championships due to take place on the 11th of September.
