Though Ex BLACK EAGLE delayed the departure of this years Nordic ski team, it certainly did not stunt the performance of those who competed in both biathlon and classic disciplines. 3 weeks under instruction from ‘Nordic Blowfish’ in Sjusjøen prepared us well for our arrival in Austria to compete against other Army units. After a hard fought battle they came away just missing out on silverware but extremely proud of their efforts. Les Contamines followed with a chance for competition between all Combat Arms units. The team showed serious tenacity in battling around the military patrol race and after much hard work the team came away with ‘best novice’ for the classic relay. With some great experience logged, the team then took the chance to support their regimental comrades in the alpine competition, enjoying the variety of some skiing involving downwards inclines as well as up!
