Ransom at Games

West Kelowna’s Julia Ransom is in Halifax this weekend preparing for the start of the Canada Winter Games.

The 17-year-old is a member of Team B.C. for the biathlon competition which begins on Sunday.

Ransom is coming off a somewhat disappointing performance at the World Junior and Youth Biathlon Championships last week in Nove Mesto, Czech Republic.

She placed 51st in the sprint, 47th in pursuit and 36th in the individual event.

Ransom was also a member of the Canadian team which finished eighth in the relay.

BMX

The Kelowna BMX Club is hosting a registration session for the 2011 season Feb. 19 and 20 at Orchard Park Mall.
