The Whistler Mountain Ski Club’s U14 racers had a strong weekend on their home slopes, as they competed in the U14 BC Coast Zone Teck Race, held at the Dave Murray Training Centre Jan. 13 and Jan. 14. The competition — a qualifying race weekend for the upcoming BC Winter Games was comprised of four separate races over the two days. Sara Stiel was the big winner of the weekend, walking away with three first-place finishes and one second-place result across the four events.
Although Whistler is no stranger to hosting high-level sporting events, it’s been awhile since Canada’s best biathletes battled for a major title at Whistler Olympic Park. That’s set to change next year, following the Whistler Biathlon Society’s announcement last week that it has been selected to host the 2019 North American and Canadian Biathlon Championships.
Growing up, Kayla Constantini was always on the sidelines cheering on her older sister, Amanda, as she competed with the Whistler Freeride Club. That made it all the more special when, earlier this month, the nine-year-old picked up her first-ever win in the female ski 9-11 category at the Whistler Blackcomb regional junior freeski challenge — only her second competition — before watching her sister pick up a third-place result in the female ski 15-18 division.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
