Beaudry takes aim at world championship relay

Sarah Beaudry of Prince George will be back on the course Saturday at the IBU world biathlon championships in Oestersund, Sweden.
In her final race at the event, Beaudry, 24, will fly the Canadian flag in the women’s 4 X 6–kilometre relay, teamed up with Emma Lunder of Vernon, Megan Bankes of Calgary and Rosanna Crawford of Canmore.
Beaudry’s second world championships began last week with a 16th-place finish in the mixed relay. The Caledonia Nordic Ski Club member placed 47th in the sprint on Friday and gained five positions in Sunday’s pursuit to place 42nd.
In the 15km individual race Beaudry finished 64th. Lunder was the top Canadian in that race, placing 26th, while Crawford was 63rd and Bankes placed 88th.
On Thursday, Lunder teamed up with Scott Gow of Canmore in the single mixed relay and finished 15th.
Norway (Marte Olsbu Roeiseland/Johannes Thingnes Boe) won gold in 35:43.2. Italy (Dorothea Wierer/Lukas Hofer) captured silver (+13.4) and Sweden (Hanna Oeberg/Sebastien Samuelsson) were the bronze medalists (+20.0).
