During the break the US athletes trained in Italy to prepare for World Championships. With temperatures unseasonably warm. The athletes will have to battle extreme snow conditions from sun to shade out on the course, then come in to shoot poised in front of 30,000 screaming spectators in the stadium and shooting range.
