Results from Saturday, Aug 6, 2022 Sprint at Summer Nationals in VT

https://www.eabiathlon.org/race-results

The ‘open class’ is both Seniors and Juniors combined together. Then the Juniors are also on a separate class result. I think both age classes carried rifles on the entire course while the Youth and younger did a shorter course plus some ‘rifle loops’.  

There are a number of Canadian biathletes competing also—and they often come down with really fast roller skis..almost rollerblade fast.

Mass Start and Pursuits tomorrow!! The link to the start times is posted on the main sheet of the same webpage.
