More on Lowell:

Bailey's two passions in life are biathlon and music. He has a travel guitar that he brings on the road with him during biathlon competitions and training camps.   He even played at his team manager's wedding.  He also plays mandolin in two local bluegrass bands in the Lake Placid area, Swimming With Champy and Big Slyde (www.bigslyde.com).  He writes and performs his own songs as a singer-songwriter solo act as well.

Bailey competed in two Olympic Winters Games, three Junior World Championships, and seven World Championships.  In 2003, Lowell raced in his first Senior World Championships.  That year, Bailey competed for the US Biathlon Team as well as the UVM Catamount NCAA Nordic Ski Team.  In 2004, after more than ten years in biathlon, Bailey realized he could not maintain an elite level in both biathlon and Nordic racing.  Forfeiting his US Biathlon National Team spot, he skied for the Catamounts for another two years while finishing his undergraduate degree. While attending UVM, he placed 2nd in two successive NCAA Championships ('03,'04) and was a three-time NCAA Academic All-American. 

He returned to biathlon in 2005 and eventually qualified for his first Olympic team in 2006.  Bailey went on to compete in every World Cup Competition Season following the Torino Games until present, including the Vancouver Winter Olympics in 2010.  He had a breakout season as a 30-year-old during the winter of 2011-12 in which he had two World Cup top-five performances and finished with a world ranking of 14th on the season.  Bailey placed 28th in the '12-'13 overall rankings with three top-ten finishes during the season.
