More on Clare:

Clare started skiing in middle school and was a Maine high school state champion and two-time member of the New England Junior National Championship team. As an undergraduate at Wellesley College, she ran cross-country and track and started the Wellesley Ski Team, a club which continues to compete in the USCSA. After graduating in 2010, Clare spent a year at the University of New Hampshire, running, skiing, and pursuing a master's degree in linguistics. She was the women's Nordic team MVP and a nominee for 2010-11 UNH Student-Athlete of the Year. Clare joined the Craftsbury Green Racing Project in 2011 with the intent of finally making skiing a top priority, and began competing in biathlon in 2013. Some of her career highlights include 2x top-10 in the American Birkebeiner, 8x top-20 at US Nationals, 8x top-6 on the USSA SuperTour, 1st in the 2013 Biathlon National Championship mass start and 2x 1st at the 2014 North American Biathlon Championships. Following the 2014 season, Clare was nominated to the US Biathlon Development Group and now divides her time between Craftsbury, VT and Lake Placid, NY.
