Day 5 of the World Para Nordic Skiing Championships carried on Wednesday at Caledonia Nordic Ski Club. On the schedule for the day was the Biathlon Sprint. The short cross-country track combined with the shooting arena was the focus as Canadians strived for more medals.  Emily Young and Brittany Hudak competed in the women's standing biathlon sprint, after the morning saw the sit-ski biathletes compete. The best finish there was a near podium fourth for Derek Zaplotinsky. In the men's standing sprint, Mark Arendz managed a bronze. That the PEI-boy's third medal of the games. As for the women competing, no dice on medals in this event, though they did have their family and friends cheering them on to the photo finish.  After all the numbers were calculated, Brittany Hudak would finish sixth and Emily Young took eighth.
