From the boasting about your alma mater portion of the program, comes this shout out to Walt Shepard, Bowdoin class of 2010 (gulp), for his three victories at the North American/U.S. Biathlon Championships. Walt won the 10k sprint, the 12.5k pursuit race and the 15k mass start. Because of his strong performance he was invited to race with the U.S. National Team at the Canadian Biathlon Championships, which are being held on the 2010 Olympic courses, this week. Congrats, Walt. Of course, shout out to the head Bowdoin Nordic coach who whipped Walt into shape this season...even though he's too much of a sissy to run 12 miles with D and I next week. (I mean Nate, not Walt...Walt knows how to use a rifle.)
In a related story, I skated about 8k today and nearly died.
