Maine Native Falls Short In Biathlon Competition
Maine biathlete Clare Egan shot a perfect 10-for-10 from the prone position Thursday but finished far behind gold medalist Hanna Oeberg of Sweden.
A native of Cape Elizabeth, Clare Egan missed four shots from the standing position and finished in 62nd place, nearly 6 minutes and 54 seconds behind Oeberg.
The 15-kilometer biathlon competition, which combines cross country skiing and rifle shooting, was moved from Wednesday to Thursday due to high winds.
Egan on Saturday finished in 61st place in the 7.5-kilometer biathlon sprint. The top 60 finishers moved on to the shorter competition.
