They waxed their skis and zeroed their rifles as Biathlon Yukon hosted team trials for the Arctic Winter Games taking place this March in Nuuk, Greenland.

A total of 19 potential team members attended Saturday and 20 Sunday – as well as some ineligible biathletes who just wanted to race – at Biathlon Yukon’s range on Grey Mountain Road.

The trials consisted of an individual start sprint race Saturday and a mass start distance race Sunday.

Bronwyn Goodwin-Williams had the best aim Saturday, hitting eight out of 10 in two trips to the range. She went on to win the juvenile female division that day.

Junior female winner Maria Peters, junior male winner Liam Adel and Bruce Wilson were best at the range Sunday with 14 out of 20 hit in four bouts at the range.

Aidan Hupe was tops for juveniles with 11 of 15 hit in three trips to the gallery on Sunday.

There are a total of eight spots available on the ski biathlon team and eight on the snowshoe biathlon team.

Biathlon Yukon will host the snowshoe trials this coming weekend at the range.

Yukon’s biathlon team could be announced as early as next week.
