On May 5, Corrine Malcolm was doing intervals up Whiteface Mountain outside Lake Placid, New York, where she was going through training camp with the US Biathlon team, when she had an epiphany.
“I realized I was doing intervals while my college class was graduating,” she says.
Malcolm, 22, had left Montana State University in Bozeman two years earlier to pursue the biathlon full-time. “On the men’s team, only one of the six has a college degree,” she says. “But on the women’s side, I’m the only one of the seven who doesn’t have one. So it’s a work in progress.”
