Ryan Elden Athlete Travel Fund

Raised by 40 people in 1 month

   My name is Ryan Elden. I train and compete in  biathlon, (a combination of cross country skiing and target shooting). I am from Quesnel, BC, and moved to Whistler to train full time Whistler Nordic Development Centre immediately after graduating high school in June 2017. 
   I have won medals at the National level and recently qualified for the Canadian National Junior Team to compete at several competitions in Czech Republic and Slovenia. I also earned a position on the Canadian Youth Team to represent Canada at the Youth World Championships in Estonia later this winter. My long term goals are to be selevted to the Canadian National Biathlon Team and compete at the World Cup level and Olympics.

    I work part time to help support my dreams, but am unable to fully fund myself because it costs approximately $30,000/year for training, travelling, and living expenses. Your donations go a long way in supporting me in pursuit of my dreams and goals to represent Canada on the world stage. Thank you.

Phew! After an amazing two weeks of racing I've ended up back in Munich, Germany where our journey began. My first international tour was a success, I would say. Not all my races were fantastic but I am happy with my performance. With two top 40 placings in Nové Mesto, and qualifying for the pursuit in Pokljuka. Now it is off to France for a bit of training before the Youth World Championships in Otepää, Estonia.

You can see all the Canadian Junior teams results at www.biathlonworld.com under the data centre tab.

Thank you all for your continued support. It helps push me ever closer to my dreams and I wouldn't be where I am today without all of you.

Today we went for our first ski at the beautiful Nova Mesto venue in Czech Republic. The course looks rough but fun, so I can't wait to get out and race! My first international race is coming up fast, scheduled for the 26th. I can't begin to explain how excited I am, I've been dreaming of this life for so long it's crazy to think it's actually happening. Thank you all for your crazy amount of support, it means so much to me.
