Burns Lake biathlete Emily Dickson anchored Canada’s women’s relay team to a 15th-place finish Wednesday at the IBU World Cup in Oestersund, Sweden.
The Canadian team (Dickson, Nadia Moser of Whitehorse, Emma Lunder of Vernon and Benite Peiffer of Whistler) completed the 4 X 6 kilometre event in 1:26.24.7, seven minutes 36 seconds behind the gold medalists from Norway.
Sweden took silver and Germany captured bronze.
Dickson got through her two shooting rounds without a penalty, using three spare rounds in each of her probe and standing bouts.
Dickson, 26, started the World Cup season Sunday with an 80th-place finish in the 15 km individual race.
She’ll be back in the start gate Friday for the women’s 7.5 km sprint. The top 60 will qualify for Sunday’s pursuit.
