Danica Ariano

Local biathlete



From a young age, Danica has loved sport and competition, and after participating in a variety of different sports (including ringette, rowing, fencing, and soccer), she decided to try her hand at biathlon at the age of 11 She quickly fell in love with the sport that combines cross-country skiing and rifle shooting, and for several years now she has worked hard to balance school with her commitment to training. Most recently, she has been nominated to train on the U20 Canadian National Development team following her podium finish at the 2018 Canadian National Championships. Next year, Danica plans to train full time for biathlon (once she has graduated high school), with the aim of competing internationally for Canada. Danica is stoked to have Simply Delicious on board this year to support her while she works towards her goals in sport!
