More on Casey:

Casey was born and raised in Winthrop a small town on the east slope of the North Cascades mountains in North Central Washington. He started skiing as soon as I could walk, mostly on alpine skis at first but eventually shifted to more nordic skiing because he could ski right out his back door. His mom got him started in biathlon when he was 10 years old to keep his interest in skiing. Casey continued biathlon and skiing through high school but his main focus was on skiing and doing well at Junior Nationals. Casey's senior year of high school he qualified to compete in the Youth World Championships where he traveled to Sweden to represent the United States. After high school he moved to Montana where he attended Montana State University and was part of the NCAA ski team. After Casey's first semester he realized that he could have lots of success as a biathlete and so he became a full time athlete. Since then he has been both a student athlete and full time athlete. He is now a member of the US Biathlon National B-Team and Maine Winter Sports team living and training mainly in northern Maine.
