By Emilie Hackett, Special to the Record – Léo and Pauline Grandbois are decidedly two names to watch out for in 2019. The two biathletes, 19 and 16, competed over the weekend in the hopes to qualify for the Biathlon Junior World Championships (BJWC) and the Canada Winter Games (CWG). Their first significant competition of the year, the two found success, as Léo and Pauline both qualified for the CWG. “I also qualified for the BJWC,” mentioned Léo, adding that he won all three qualifying races. “Pauline did well, she qualified easily for the CWG but because of her young age, qualifying for the World Championships was much more difficult.” See full story in the Tuesday, Jan. 8 edition of The Record.
