Athlete Profile

Today’s profile is United States biathlete Tim Burke. Burke was born February 3rd, 1982 in Paul Smiths, NY. Burke has made 3 podiums in the Biathlon world cup, and in 2009 he became the first ever American to lead the World Cup.

Burke is also the 2nd US athlete ever to finish as high as 2nd in a World Cup competition. Burke took over the World Cup standings lead in December 2009 due to Emil Hegle Svendsen missing a couple races, and Christoph Sumann taking 103rd place. He held it for just one race, but then by taking 2nd in a race he regained the overall lead.
