With a trip to the winner-take-all Olympic Trials Finals in Altenburg, Germany on the line BethAnn Chamberlain proved that she has what it takes with her win today, and vaulted into fourth place in the overall standing. Her score of 293.51 for the top three races is just shy of the qualifying standard of 294 points, so her fate is in the hands of the US Biathlon’s International Competition Committee. In her favor is the fact that she has been skiing very well all week, and her clean shooting today shows what she is capable of when she puts it all together.br /br /Chamberlain, who has struggled on the range this series, but skied well, shot clean to lead from start to finish. In second place was MWSC alum, Laura Spector, 5.6 seconds off the pace. Overall points leader, Tracy Colliander, had an uncharacteristic tough day in the range, missing 4 shots to finish 5th place, 1 minute 38.7 seconds back.br /br /In the Men’s field, Wynn Roberts took the sprint race with 2 misses, beating fellow Minnesotan, Lief Nordgren, who had only 1 miss, by 3.3 seconds. MWSC’s Walt Shepard, like Colliander, had his toughest day in the range, missing 5 to finish in 9th, 1 minute 52.4 seconds back. Russell Currier continued his blistering pace on the trails, but missed 4 shots to finish in 6th place, 48.6 seconds back.br /br /With the final Results are in it is anticipated that the US Team heading over to the final round of the Olympic Trials in Germany will be the MWSC’s Walt Shepard, Wynn Roberts and Lief Nordgren from Minnesota and Zach Hall from Alaska.br / br /On the Women’s side it will be MWSC alumni, Tracy Colliander, from Fort Kent and Durango, Colorado and Laura Spector from Lenox, Massachussetts. The third spot will be Susan Dunklee from Vermont. A final decision on the fourth Women’s spot will be made later today. br /br /Making it a clean sweep for MWSC Women, Andrea Mayo won the Youth Sprint today and Grace Boutot, last years silver medalist at World Youth Championships, won the Junior Sprint. Mayo has been skiing fast all week, but has had a tough time on the range. She found her shooting touch today, hitting 8 of 10. br /br /An announcement on the Youth and Junior teams for World Junior Championships will be made later today, but both Mayo and Boutot are expected to be named to the team.div class=”blogger-post-footer”img width=’1′ height=’1′ src=’https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/6813061107698506856-7682359082756672512?l=mwscbiathlon.blogspot.com’ alt=” //div
