Leilani Tam von Burg

I am a in my third year as a member of the Canadian National Junior Biathlon Team — in pursuit of excellence and my lifelong Olympic dream. I grew up in the natural beauty of Gatineau Park. My passion is gliding on snow. I started skiing when I could hardly walk, and have loved it ever since. I am 19 now. I live and train full-time in Canmore at the National Training Centre. My first year of training alongside Canada’s best Biathletes has been challenging and inspiring. The hard work has paid off, rewarding me with the highlight of my athletic career, two gold medals and a silver at the Canada Winter Games in Prince George.
