While the rest of Camrose might not be so happy about the few snowflakes that fell in town this week – the Vikings Biathlon Team is quite delighted! The Team’s first race of the season is in just a few weeks!
Built over many decades, the strong reputation of Augustana’s Biathlon Team continues to prove itself. The Augustana Biathlon program is the only collegiate biathlon program outside of Europe. Our Coaching Staff has been invited to lead Team Canada at the FISU games twice, attending the 2013 World University Games in Italy as the Head Wax Technician and again invited to coach at the World University Games in Slovakia in January of 2015. Vikings Student-Athletes continue to share their biathlon passion expertise with the community by coaching youngsters in the Camrose Ski Club biathlon programs.
The Team Alumni are hosting its first Dueling Pianos Fundraising Gala on November 8 at the Tap Room at the Norsemen Inn. This exciting night of dueling piano entertainment is a fundraising event for the Augustana Biathlon Team. Funds raised will be used to assist with traveling costs to competitions, purchasing ski wax and equipment, wax room materials and the overall development of young athletes.
