Erin Yungblut

Biathlete

Erin Yungblut is a 24-year old biathlete coming off a successful first year in the senior ranks competing for Canada at International events such as International Biathlon Union (IBU) Cups. She originally hails from Wroxeter, Ontario but currently resides in Canmore, Alberta. Erin’s goal is to compete for Canada at the 2018 Winter Olympics and win medals at the 2022 Winter Olympics. Along the way she hopes to inspire others to chase their dreams and live their passions, as well as follow a healthy active lifestyle.

Erin races for Canada internationally and represents the province of Ontario when racing domestically. She trains full-time at the National Development Center for Biathlon in Canmore, Alberta, with the team Rocky Mountain Racers. Erin’s journey in Nordic sports began eight years ago when she first learned to ski and I fell in love with the sport of biathlon five years ago when she began shooting in her final year of high school.

The challenge of the two unique sports — cross-country skiing and rifle marksmanship — appealed to Erin greatly and she has quickly risen as one of Canada's most promising young biathletes. Erin is drawn to the sport of Biathlon because of the many attributes one must possess to be successful – power, endurance, and finesse on the skis and focus and precision on the range.
