Smith 2nd, Canadians Pack Top-15 in Idre Opener

Picture 1

At the opening IBU Cup race of the season in Idre, Sweden, Canada’s Nathan Smith shot perfectly and came within four seconds of a completely perfect day – he finished second behind Timofey Lapshin of Russia, and another ten ahead of third-place finisher Erlend Bjøntegård of Norway.

The 10 k sprint is the first race of the season and serves as a warmup for the World Cup, which kicks off tomorrow with a mixed relay. Later this week, many top finishers from the IBU Cup openers will join the World Cup for individual races.

Canada had a good day across the board: Marc-Andre Bedard and Brendan Green were also clean on the range, with Bedard tying for 7th and Green two seconds behind him in 9th. With one penalty, Scott Gow finished 13th.

Sean Doherty and Jeremy Teela led the American team with two penalties each, placing 39th and 41st.
