Aussie biathletes tackle round two of Italian sprint series

9 January 2017

BIATHLON: Four young Aussie biathletes have taken to the second set of sprint races at the IBU Cup 4 event in Martell, Italy.

Competing in tricky windy conditions Sabrina Howell did exceptionally well to only miss one of her ten shots to finish 84th of the 97 finishers.

She just beat home compatriot Jill Colebourn who claimed 87th with four missed shots.

The Australian men's representatives Daniel Walker and Jeremy Flanagan both missed four shots as they claimed 101st and 108th of 114 finishers.

Of the four competing in Italy, Walker is the best chance at qualifying for the World Championships but still requires improved performances at the IBU Cup 5 and 6 events to push his prospects.

Both Walker and Colebourn will compete in the green and gold at the Asian Winter Games in February.
