Lo­cal cadet shines at biathlon

Stanstead Journal - - SPORTS - Val­cartier

Last­week, Val­cartier was the site of the fi­nal biathlon com­pe­ti­tions for cadets from right across the coun­try who par­tic­i­pated in four dif­fer­ent types of races. The only cadet from the BeauceBo­is­francs-Estrie who was in­vited to par­tic­i­pate was Alex­ina Gaudet-Gre­goire, a ju­nior from 067 Avi­a­tion de Sher­brooke.

In her first re­lay race, Alex­ina and her two team­mates took the gold medal af­ter com­pet­ing against a dozen teams, each rep­re­sent­ing their prov­ince or Cana­dian ter­ri­tory. The same team won the bronze medal in the ‘pa­trol’ race. Dur­ing the in­di­vid­ual races, Alex­ina placed 11th from among the roughly thirty biath­letes in the mass de­par­ture race and 12th dur­ing the ‘pur­suit’ race – a re­mark­able show­ing for this biath­lete in only her sec­ond year of prac­tis­ing the sport!
