Ransom will also compete in the women’s 15km individual (Feb. 14), the mixed relay (Feb. 20) and the women’s 4 x 6 relay (Feb. 22).

She had two top 10’s in the 2017-18 World Cup season with a ninth-place finish in the 15km individual event in Oestersund, Sweden and matched that result in the 7.5km sprint in Oberhof, Germany, shooting clean both times.
