Tim grew up in the small town of Paul Smiths, New York, which is located just outside of the Olympic village of Lake Placid. With abundant winter snow and an active family, Tim started skiing and competing from a very young age. After competing in Nordic skiing since childhood, Tim tried biathlon when he was 13 and never looked back.
Along the way, Tim has become a two-time winter Olympian, competing in the 2006 and 2010 games. Tim has also competed on the World Cup for the past seven years and during this time has accumulated multiple podium finishes and numerous top ten’s. Tim’s most memorable performances came in the 2009/2010 season when he notched up three podium finishes to attain the number one world ranking for a portion of the year. In doing so, Tim became the first American to achieve the number one world ranking.
Tim currently resides and trains out of Lake Placid, New York. Besides being close to Tim’s hometown, Lake Placid is home to the US Olympic Training Center and is surrounded by ideal training conditions. As Tim enters the prime of his career, he hopes to continue breaking barriers by becoming the first American to win an Olympic medal in the sport of biathlon.
