On the final day of IBU Youth/Junior World Championships in Cheile Gradistei, Romania, the Norwegian women and Russian men bested the field in the junior relays, while the U.S. women placed 12th and Canadian men finished 14th.
Sean Doherty's just like any 20 year old, except that he has 10 biathlon world junior titles to his name and won the last race of his junior career in Romania on Sunday. "I get nervous just like any other human,” he explained. “There’s a lot of pressure for these races I just did, and I’m really happy with how I performed with it all, but it’s something that’s not that easy to deal with.”
Sean Doherty reached the podium in his first race of 2016 IBU Junior World Championships, placing third in the 15 k individual. Earlier on Thursday, another U.S. biathlete Maddie Phaneuf finished fifth in the women's 12.5 k individual. "It’s a prefect day," stated US Biathlon's Chief of Sport Bernd Eisenbichler.
