WINNIPEG - Megan Imrie’s Olympic dream has officially become reality.

The 22-year-old product of Falcon Lake was named to Canada’s Olympic Biathlon Team Thursday in Canmore, Alta. Imrie will be part of one the youngest biathlon teams at the Games after the unveiling of the eight-member squad.

“Today was the official giving-of-the-jackets ceremony so I know I have the official Canada logo on my back right now,” said Imrie in a telephone interview from Canmore. “And it’s pretty exciting.

“It’s also great because after training today I was given my jacket alongside two of my teammates who are also two of my best friends (Zina Kocher and Rosanna Crawford).”

WINNIPEG - Megan Imrie’s Olympic dream has officially become reality.

The 22-year-old product of Falcon Lake was named to Canada’s Olympic Biathlon Team Thursday in Canmore, Alta. Imrie will be part of one the youngest biathlon teams at the Games after the unveiling of the eight-member squad.

"Today was the official giving-of-the-jackets ceremony so I know I have the official Canada logo on my back right now," said Imrie in a telephone interview from Canmore. "And it’s pretty exciting.

"It’s also great because after training today I was given my jacket alongside two of my teammates who are also two of my best friends (Zina Kocher and Rosanna Crawford)."

The rest of the team includes Jean-Philippe Le Guellec, Megan Tandy, Robin Clegg, Marc-Andre Bedard and Brendan Green. They now head to Mt. Washington, B.C. for a pre-Olympics training camp and begin their Olympics on Feb. 13.

"I’ve been home for just a few days and it’s given me a chance to reflect and understand how much I’ve enjoyed this journey," said Imrie.

"The Games are going to unfold with blazing speed and they’re going to be over before I know it. So, I’m really trying to focus on slowing things down and loving every minute of the lead-up and the hype."
