Clare Egan cruises to career best in biathlon at World Cup
The native of Cape Elizabeth places 13th in a World Cup event in Finland, her first since the Olympics.

...Competing for the first time since the PyeongChang Winter Games, Egan placed 13th from a field of 96. Olympic gold medalist Darya Domracheva of Belarus won the race in a time of 20 minutes, 56.8 seconds. Egan hit 9 of 10 targets and finished 46.9 seconds behind Domracheva.

“It’s been a long time since I had a personal-best result,” Egan said. “It’s a bit of a surprise to do it even with one miss, but I had a personal-best ski rank today and that’s biathlon. It always feels good to have a personal best.”

Egan wore bib 17 and started between two of the top five athletes in the World Cup rankings – Domracheva and Germany’s Laura Dahlmeier.

Maine athlete elected to serve as chair of international biathlon committee

Clare Egan of Cape Elizabeth, who last month competed for the United States in the Winter Olympic Games at Pyeongchang, South Korea, has been elected to a position within the International Biathlon Union.

Egan last week was elected to chair the IBU’s Athletes Committee, which according to the IBU is intended to act as a link between active athletes and the IBU bodies.

Egan, 30, was selected as the committee chair by receiving the most votes (130) from her fellow athletes during balloting conducted in Pyeongchang. She is joined on the athletes committee by Switzerland’s Aita Gasparin (105), Erik Lesser of Germany (100) and Martin Fourcade of France (98).
