Tough day for North Country biathletes

It was a tough day yesterday for North Country biathlon skiers competing in Vancouver. Lake Placid's Lowell Bailey finished 36th in the 12.5 kilometer "pursuit" competition. Tim Burke from Paul Smiths finished in 47th place. Both men will have at least two more chances to reach the podium in the sport, which combines rifle shooting with endurance cross-country skiing.

Tomorrow during The Eight O'Clock Hour, we'll have a special Winter Olympics edition of StoryCorps. Bailey and Burke will talk with Kris Seymour, one of their early coaches, about what it was like to grow up competing in the Adirondacks.
