There will be 3,100 athletes competing in the 12 sports disciplines making it larger than the Peyonchang Olympics. Jennifer Findlay and Tim Wehner last participated in 2015 in Quebec City, where they met others, who told us about the International Masters Biathlon Championships. Wehner has subsequently gone to compete repeatedly in Kontiolahti, Finland.
Biathlon club members have been training at the Lake of the Woods Gun Club regularly, and they are thankful for the ongoing support. The athletes from Kenora competing are:
- Jennifer Findlay,
- Michelle Simone and
- Tim Wehner.
