The first day of competition at the 2012 Canadian Championships in Valcartier, Quebec featured two different competitions: a Mass Start and an Individual.
Biathlon Canada is piloting a mixed Mass Start / Individual competition day this year and next at the Canadian Championships. The older categories (Men, Jr. Men, Women, Jr. Women) do a Mass Start, so they avoid the 20km and 15km distances of the Individual. This is possible due to the smaller number of participants in these categories. The Youth Men, Youth Women, Sr. Boys, Sr. Girls, Masters Men and Masters Women still do the Individual.
Here are the results for the Men, Women, Jr. Men and Jr. Women and the Youth Men, Youth Women, Sr. Boys, Sr. Girls, and Masters Men.
