All Biathlon Alberta members in good standing are eligible to attend the 2020 National Championships in Valcartier but the Biathlon Alberta Board of Directors has decided to support 18 IBU category athletes and 8 Senior Boys/ Girls financially for their trip to the East Coast. Emails have been sent out to all eligible athletes yesterday.
We have 19 athletes that are pre-qualified due to their international races during the 2019-20 season that are eligible to receive the support.
Some of these pre-qualified athletes will not attend the National Championships since they will be attending the last World Cup competition weekend.
You can find the list of all pre-qualified IBU category athletes HERE.
The following list of athletes is eligible to fill spots in the IBU categories due to successful racing at the Calforex Cup events. The best 6 out of 10 possible races were considered for this.
You can find the list of the athletes that are eligible to fill an IBU category spot HERE.
The last category that will receive support from Biathlon Alberta are the Senior Boys & Girls. A total of 8 spots are available for Team Alberta. We have, as per the 2020 Nationals Selection Criteria, combined both categories and ordered them by their percentage (best 6 out of 10 possible races).
You can see the total list of the eligible Senior Boys & Girls HERE.
All invited athletes have until March 9, 2020, to accept their spots for Team Alberta. We will offer a spot on the team to the next athlete in line should an athlete decline their spot.
Congratulations to all qualified athletes!
