Biathlon team surprises

Last year, biathlete Haley Johnson got a few World Cup points. This year, she isn’t going to the World Cup or IBU Cup.

In February, Wynn Roberts got a start in the Olympics. This winter? No slot on the team.

Such is the harsh, unforgiving world of sports that don’t attract mountains of money. Most of the spots on the team were determined by trials.

Jay Hakkinen, who has had a long career with a few top 10s along the way, is taking the early part of the season off.
