Biathlete Andrei Secu shot ten for ten enroute to a bronze medal performance in the sprint competition on a frigid and blowing snow day at River Bend Golf & Recreation Area.
“My race was pretty good overall,” said a beaming Secu. .”I managed to put it together on the range which was a pretty big part. I think that was key in the tough and windy conditions. On the skis I was feeling a bit slow but that will only get better as the week goes on.”
After the Canada Games, Secu will head to Sweden and Norway representing Canada for the very first time.
All four men were in the top 12 and three of the BC women were in the top seven.
“I’m pretty happy with how the team did,” said coach Jessica Blenkarn (North Vancouver). “The weather conditions were challenging today. It’s always good to get that first day over with. Now the athletes know the course and their routines. I look forward to the rest of the competition.”
