In another 20-something-question, fill-in-the-blanks series, we checked in with the world-class U.S. and Canadian biathletes that will be competing at 2017 International Biathlon Union (IBU) Youth & Junior World Championships Feb. 22-28 in Osrblie (also known as Brezno-Osrblie), Slovakia.

Here’s 19-year-old Nadia Moser, of the Biathlon Alberta Training Centre, who is representing Canada at her second Youth/Junior Worlds. On Saturday, Moser placed 31st in the junior women’s 7.5 k sprint after finishing 41st in the 12.5 k individual on Thursday.

“My full name is Nadia Moser, but you can call me Nadia.  I was born in Edmonton, Alberta, raised in Atlin, British Columbia, and one thing you should know about my hometown is that it is home to North America’s tallest fresh-water island.

I started cross-country skiing when I was very young and started biathlon when I was 14, thanks to a family friend’s recommendation.

I currently train in Canmore, Alberta, with the Biathlon Alberta Training Centre (BATC).

If I’m not skiing, you might find me reading or drawing.

If I had to pick a favorite book, it would be ‘The Golden Compass‘.

One of the things I’m most excited about for Youth/Junior World Championships in Brezno-Osrblie is racing.

This will be my second Youth/Junior World Championships, and this year, I’m competing as a junior. One race I’m especially targeting there is all of them. I don’t have specific race in mind.

The best advice anyone ever gave me about skiing or racing was to just focus on my own race.

One of the best race memories I have is… I can’t think of any particular race moment that really stands out.

If I could meet one World Cup skier, it would be Laura Dahlmeier.

If I don’t end up being a professional skier, I’ll probably be some kind of artist.

I’m missing zero days of school to be here.
