Dunklee 36th at Biathlon World Champs
Last Updated: 06.Mar.2012
Susan Dunklee moved up almost 20 places in the 10km pursuit to finish 36th at Biathlon World Championships in Ruhpolding, Germany on Sunday.
With 4 misses in the sprint race and a 53rd place finish, Susan told Fasterskier.com that she felt fortunate to qualify for the pursuit. Well, she certainly made the most of it. She had one fewer miss over four shooting stages, a near season best 85% on the range for Dunklee. She led the American squad with her teammate Sara Studebaker, the only other American woman to qualify for the pursuit, in 41st.
Meanwhile, Ida Sargent again saw World Cup action in Laht Finland. She finished 52nd in the classic sprint event. Ida will race in Drammen, Norway tomorrow in another classic sprint, and will return to Vermont to race at SuperTour Finals and Canadian Nationals.
Congratulations to our GRP representatives on the international stage!
