Tim Burke has the potential to make biathlon history. The United States has never earned an Olympic medal in the sport and Burke is hoping to change that at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. He already made history in February 2013 when he earned world championship silver in the 20km individual event – Team USA’s first world championship medal since 1987. After competing at the past two Olympic Winter Games, with a best finish of 18th in the 2010 15-kilometer mass start, Burke is now on track for success in Sochi. In addition to his world championship medal, the biathlon veteran has earned four World Cup medals and became the first American to attain the overall World Cup lead. Follow Tim Burke as he blogs about his experiences on his road to the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games.
