The 2019 Team NB Canada Winter Games Biathlon Team Trails took place at Les Aventuriers de Charlo NB on Dec 22nd & 23rd and Jan 2nd & 3rd. Twelve athletes took part in the four selection races comprised of 2 Sprint races and 2 Individual races – competing for 8 spots – 4 male and 4 female. These athletes will travel with Team NB to Red Deer, Alberta, for the first week of games, Feb 14th to 23rd. The athletes faced very tough conditions from rain and warm conditions in Dec to extreme cold in Jan – good old Northern New Brunswick weather!

We could not be prouder of the support that we have for our athletes as they chase their dreams. Be sure to follow Team NB and the amazing athletes during the Canada Winter Games.
