More on Brian:

Brian has been skiing as long as he could walk. Having been around biathlon his whole life, Brian started racing at the age of 13. Brian raced cross country and Nordic skiing in high school, which made up most of his early training. His senior year he decided to put cross country aside and train for biathlon specifically. His training paid off as Brian qualified for Youth/Junior World Championships in Obertilliach, Austria.

After high school Brian decided to take a post-grad year at the Maine Winter Sports Center. This allowed Brian to train full time for biathlon, have a full time coach and unlimited use of a range. Thanks to the great training in Maine, Brian was able to have his most successful season yet. Brian qualified for IBU Open European Championships in Nove Mesto, Czech Republic, Youth/Junior World Championships in Presque Isle, Maine and was invited to race at the Swedish national championships in Ostersund, Sweden.

Currently Brian is training in Fort Kent, Maine with Maine Winter but spends a few weeks of his summer training in Lake Placid with the National team.
