Matt Neumann, Canadian Olympian. In biathlon, he seems on target to earn that title.
Neumann’s sport brings together the disciplines of cross-country skiing and rifle marksmanship. Last season, he was awarded three gold medals at the North American/Canadian championships and went on to compete in the world junior championships.
Neumann, who developed his skills with the Caledonia Nordic Ski Club, was back at the world juniors this past winter. At the event, in Sweden, he was part of a Canadian team that placed 12th out of 18 in the 4x7.5-kilometre relay. Neumann also posted two 46th-place finishes (sprint and pursuit) and was 73rd in the individual start race.
The next Winter Olympics are in Sochi, Russia, in 2014.
