Hard Work and Medals. And a little Technology!
Andrei Secu is one of Canada's most promising young athletes. Andrei, grew up in Coquitlam, BC, but now resides in Whistler , training at the Nordic Development Center.
Andrei competes in Biathlon, a sport that combines intense cross country skiing with target rifle shooting. Fitness levels required are phenomenal.
2019 was a great year for Andrei; winning 3 bronze medals in the Canada Winter Games. Andrei also represented Canada’s Junior National team in Norway at the Junior International Biathlon Cup and at Open European Champs.
Andrei is targeting more glory in the coming years, hoping to win more medals at events like the Canada games, and maybe one day, the Winter Olympics.
One thing that fascinated us about Andrei is his use of technology to optimize his training. As well as heart rate monitors and GPS trackers, the team also utilizes sophisticated sensors that analyze power and technique to help drive improvement.
They can even use the sensors to measure the quality of their posture and follow through when shooting rifles - especially when heart rates are in the red zone.
We look forward to following his Summer training and Winter events. Good luck, Andrei!
