Lowell Bailey, biathlon

Bailey says biathlon and music are his two life passions, but the environment can’t be far behind cross-country skiing, rifle shooting and guitar. After majoring in environmental studies at the University of Vermont, this athlete worked for the Adirondack Council, which helps protect New York’s Adirondack Park.
