Since May the BBU squad has been hard at work training in Ruhpolding, GER. From the start of the summer season they have gone back to basics and have focused on shooting ensuring correct technique. They are now focusing on speed, in and out of the range and volume of training in preparation of the winter ahead where we hope they will be competing on the World Cup, IBU Cup and IBU Junior Cups. Our goal this season is to have as many athletes as possible qualifying for the European Championships in late February 2020 in Otepaa, EST and for some the World Championships in mid February 2020 in Antholz, ITA.
The squad has also recently been competing at International races at the IBU Summer World Championships which were in Minsk, BLR this year. They will shortly be competing in the German Summer Championships which take place on our “home turf” in Ruhpolding. These races help us to understand our current shape and where the athletes can then improve on, in all aspects, prior to the winter season beginning in November.
Our pre-season snow camp will take place in in Idre, SWE in November, where we will also hold our national Selection Races for our athletes. We will keep you up to date on our webpage and on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
