Gunn graduate Joanne Reid, the daughter of Olympic bronze medalist Beth (Heiden) Reid and the niece of five-time Olympic gold medalist Eric Heiden, finished 57th in the biathlon 15-kilometer individual event on Monday at the 2022 Beijing Olympics.

Reid, who also competed at the 2018 games, won a NCAA cross-country skiing title while at the University of Colorado, where she majored in applied mathematics.

In Pyeongchang four years ago, Reid finished 86th in the sprint, 22nd in individual, 15th in mixed relay and 13th in relay.

Her teammate, Deedra Irwin, executed the finest finish ever by an American biathlete, finishing seventh.
