It’s been more than 20 years since the International Biathlon Union (IBU) World Cup last paid Alberta a visit. This week, the world’s best biathletes converged on Canmore, Alberta, the home base of Canada’s national team, for the seventh stop on the IBU World Cup — with races Thursday through Sunday.
Lake Superior Biathlon coach Daniel S. Guay snapped the following photos from the second official training day on Tuesday. For his complete gallery, click here.
