No World Cup biathlon race weekend to talk about, but that gave us the opportunity to have a great new guest on our show: Johanna Talihaerm from Estonia, reporting from Lenzerheide in Switzerland. We talked about her path into biathlon, life as an athlete (individual and team), dry-firing with only a stock, Bozeman (and Altius, see link below), sponsors (see link below), funding, adventure racing, Estonia, favourite tracks, as I always say, so much more.
Enjoy the episode!
