Karly Coyne took the bronze medal to round up the podium.

“I definitely took a few extra breaths in the shooting range. My zero was very centered, very clean so I just took it very carefully in the range,” said Sherrington after the race.

These individual races conclude the biathlon events at the Canada Games. Jenna Sherrington had a remarkable week, totaling four medals; three gold medals and a bronze medal.
