What’s Next for Emily Dickson?
Prince George, B.C – Time flies when you’re having fun.
At least that’s how biathlete Emily Dickson is feeling after winning four medals this week at the Canada Winter Games.
“I’m still kind of speechless with the whole event. I can’t believe it’s already gone, it seemed like it passed so quickly but I don’t think they (Games) could have gone any better.”
Well no kidding after winning two golds (pursuit, team relay), a silver (spring), and a bronze (individual).
“I have so many memories and great experiences to take away from it, so yeah.”
The Burns Lake native and Prince George resident doesn’t plan on resting on her laurels either.
“The season’s ending quickly, I have nationals coming up in a couple of weeks and then I have a bit of an off season in April before getting right back to training May 1st.”
She admits competing in the Olympics is her ultimate goal.
“I’d definitely be lying if I said it wasn’t in my head. In biathlon the older you are the kind of better you get because it’s an endurance sport. So 2018 might be pushing it, it’s doable if the next few years go really well but 2022 might be a little more realistic.”
