Tracy and Lanny Barnes, Twin Biathletes, will be competing in the US and North American Summer Biathlon National Championships in Burlington, Vermont on August 6th and 7th. All the top Biathletes in the US as well as the top biathletes in Canada will be participating in the Championships hosted by the Ethan Allen Biathlon Club. Not only will Tracy be looking to defend her Summer US and North American titles, they both will be vying for a spot on the World Cup and World Championship team this winter. Lanny was runner up to Tracy’s National and North American Championship titles last year. There will be a two part race series to determine the World Cup and World Championship team, the first taking place at the Championships this weekend and the second taking place in Utah in October. They will be competing in a 7.5km sprint with two shooting stages and and 10km pursuit race with four shooting stages. Both race will be completed on roller skis which are very similar to skiing on snow. Temperatures are expected to be in the 80’s, so for the biathletes, they are going to have to battle the heat instead of their usual cold winter temperatures. The twins have been out in Vermont the last two weeks training hard and preparing for the races. Check www.twin biathletes.com for updates on results and pictures from the races this weekend.
