    Miles to go for Quintilio

    By TERRY JONES -- Edmonton Sun
      NAGANO -- When you're 24 in the sport of biathlon, that makes you a young gun. And the trick is to not turn the gun around and shoot yourself out of frustration.
     Kevin Quintilio lived to tell about finishing 64th in the 20-km individual.
     "I'm not very satisfied,'' said the Edmonton athlete.
     "I did not have such a good feeling on the skis today. I had four penalties which, in this field, is way too many.
     "It's been really tough all week with the snow conditions. It's hard to find the right pair of skis. Today I felt my skis were really OK but the feeling was not so good. It's a very, very tough course and there's no rest anywhere. You really have to be in top, top shape to ski well on this course.''
     Quintilio, who finished nine places back of 30-year-old teammate Steve Cyr of Valcartier, Que., tried to take it in stride.
     "This is my first Olympics. It's more for experience than anything. In our sport it takes 15 years to reach your potential. It takes that long to develop a base of training. It's such an endurance sport. The people at the top are usually in their late 20s or early 30s.''
