French biathlete Marie Dorin Habert, who trained throughout her pregnancy and was still on the shooting range a couple of weeks ago, delivered a baby girl named Adele few months ago. Marie Dorin Habert announced the arrival on her website with these words, « Hello Adele little fairy; Hello Adele with tiny nails; Hello little girl of late summer; Come and take your place in this world. »
In an interview for biathlonworld.com earlier in the summer, Marie Dorin Habert was eager for the baby to be born so she could return to full training as soon as possible. She plans to compete this winter but has no timetable for returning to the World Cup circuit.
Just as Marie’s baby was being born, Switzerland’s biathlete Selina Gasparin announced that she was pregnant and would miss the upcoming season. The Swiss Olympic Silver medalist was married earlier this summer to Ilya Chernousov. Her baby is due in the spring. Gasparin said her next biathlon goal is the 2016 IBU World Championships in Oslo.
Huge congratulations to Marie and Selina !! 🙂
