Aussie biathletes secure places in next IBU Cup events

19 December 2016

BIATHLON: It’s been a busy weekend for three of Australia’s leading biathletes who competed in the IBU Cup event in Obertilliach, Austria.

In the men’s individual Damon Morton finished 61st and Daniel Walker claimed 111th.

The duo backed up the following day to compete in the sprint event with Morton finishing 84th after missing one shot and Walker claiming 120th after missing three shots.

Both Walker and Morton’s results in recent weeks have seen them qualify for the next stage of the IBU Cup (January, 2017) with the first event being in Martell, Italy (January 6-8).

Damon’s younger sister Darcie, who competed at the 2016 Winter Youth Olympics earlier in 2016, was also in action finishing 73rd in the women’s individual and 69th in the sprint. Darcie’s result in the sprint also secured her qualification for the next set of IBU Cup events.

The trio will be aiming for some strong performances in early 2017 as they go in search of qualification.
