Brendan Green followed that up with a 24th place finish in the men's 10-kilometre sprint last Thursday in the World Cup. He struggled on his skis but was perfect at the range.

"The kicker today was it was snowing heavy for the first group of starters and then stopped so the course was a little quicker for some of the guys," he said.

It was Green's second top-30 result this season.

Nathan Smith and Scott Gow then made history by placing fourth and fifth in the IBU Cup event in the 10km sprint.

Back at the World Cup, Jean Philippe Le Guellec placed eighth, his best result of the season and his third career top 10, in the 12.5km pursuit competition.

"I've been gettng very anxious over the last few weekends and totally over analyzing everything," he said. "My motto this weekend was to just focus on skiing and shooting. I did that today and it took the pressure off. This was a great result and I'm very happy."

Squamish's Megan Imrie was 25th in the women's 10km pursuit, her best result to date.

To cap it off, the Canadian World Cup relay team placed sixth in the mixed event. The team consisted of Jean-Philippe Le Guellec, Zina Kocher, Megan Imrie and Brenan Green. They were just three seconds back of the top five and just over 30 seconds back of the podium.
