With Scaphoid Fracture, Tandy’s Season Comes to an End

Canadian biathlete Megan Tandy was set to race her first home-turf World Cup, before a fall on a morning jog left her with a broken wrist. Now her season is over and, having not yet met Sport Canada carding criteria, she's unsure if she will be able to continue her career. "Iʼm not going to give up on another two years without a fight," she said.
