2016 Youth World Championship
This year I am a full time post graduate athlete training with Maine Winter Sports Center. I will be moving into the athlete residence in Fort Kent so I will be living with other athletes and my focus will be on training full time.
I am thankful that my job (Paradis Shop N Save) allows me to work around my training schedule and it helps with my living expense. Although working at Paradis is helpful, my tuition and competition expenses supersede my yearly earnings.
This year I have the opportunity once again to go to trials in Alaska to try and qualify for the U.S. Biathlon Team. Only the top 4 will be accepted to go to Youth/Junior World championships in Romania and I plan on being the top qualifying spot.
I am grateful for last year’s funding, and I hope I can count on the support of friends, family and the community once again this year.
