The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
The Winter Olympics in Vancouver has a target-shooting event, but the lamestream media has omitted it. Sadly, U.S. competitors were eliminated by bad weather, as this report from the National Shooting Sports Foundation outlines:
"Stinging sleet, snow and poor visibility took away any chance of winning the 10km biathlon sprint for American Tim Burke, a favorite to win a biathlon medal. The first biathletes to go off on Sunday skied and fired their rifles in a light rain, while those who went off later -- including Burke -- admittedly had no chance due to a sudden turn for the worse in the weather. 'The people starting in the middle of the pack had no chance today. Unfortunately, I was one of those,' Burke said."
More Olympic biathlon action followed with the men's 12.5km pursuit and the women's 10k pursuit. The .22 caliber 5-shot biathalon rifle is an alien-looking contraption and most marksmen have never seen anything like it. http://tinyurl.com/yl729wd
