Hay River biathlete Brendan Green says he's taking some time to "recharge" his batteries after completing two races so far at the Sochi Winter Olympic Games.  

He finished 23rd in the men's 10 kilometre sprint Saturday and 35th in Monday's 12.5 kilometre men's pursuit.  

Green says that race was challenging and he struggled with the soft, slushy snow conditions.

​"I do better in colder conditions with the hard-packed snow, and I think that's a little better for my back as well and that sort of thing," he said.

"I'm definitely happy with my sprint results. I mean, [Monday] I was definitely hoping for more but I've had a couple of days now to re-group and re-focus and so hopefully I can have a great day on Thursday for the individual race."

Green has been battling a sinus infection but says he's feeling the best he's felt at the games so far, and hopes it's a sign of good things to come.  

Green's next race is the 20-kilometre individual biathlon, and it begins Thursday at 7 a.m. MT.
