Best US Finish in Olympic Biathlon Posted by US Soldier

When it comes to the Winter Olympics, certain sports tend to get more attention, especially when medals are involved. It is just as important to note when the US improves in a sport that has never medaled in. This past Sunday, Army Sgt. Jeremy Teela, a three-time Olympian, finished ninth in the men’s 10-kilometer sprint on the first day of competition in the biathlon. He will continue to compete on February 16th, 18th and 21st in hopes to become the first athlete from the US to medal in the Biathlon which consists of cross country skiing and shooting.

Sgt Teela is a member of the Utah National Guard and a part of the U.S. Army World Class Athlete Program. He not only serves his country, but also has the ability to make history during the Olympics.
