Another medal for Quesnel’s Ryan Elden at the Canada Winter Games in Red Deer.
Elden was part of BC’s 3 by 7 1/2 k male relay team that won bronze today in the Biathlon.
BC finished behind host Alberta and Quebec.
Elden won gold in the male 10-k individual pursuit yesterday.
19-year old Ryan Elden was first in Biathlon’s male 10 kilometer pursuit on Tuesday in Red Deer, Alberta.
His winning time was 27 minutes and 14 seconds, which was almost 53 seconds clear of second place.
There were 38 athletes in the race.
Elden’s teammate, Andrei Secu from Coquitlam, was third.
That bodes well for the male 3×7 1/2 k relay later this (Feb 20) afternoon.
Elden was 5th out of 37 in Sunday’s 7 1/2 k sprint.
He will also compete in the 12 1/2 k male individual race tomorrow. (Fed 21)
Still at the Canada Winter Games, Quesnel’s Katie Young and the BC ringette team are back in action in the playoffs this afternoon.
They are taking on New Brunswick with a trip to the semi-finals on the line.
BC went 2 and 2 in the round-robin with wins over Prince Edward Island and Saskatchewan and losses to Ontario and Quebec.
Young has a goal and three assists in four games so far.
Next week, Quesnel’s Spencer Gamache will compete in Archery.
