Brendan Green was a member of the Canadian biathlon team that produced numerous best ever results at Sochi 2014. Among them was Green’s ninth place finish in the 15km mass start. He was also a member of the 4×7.5km relay team that posted a best ever seventh place finish. That improved on the 10th place finish the relay squad had recorded four years earlier at Vancouver 2010 where Green made his Olympic debut.

Green ran into injury trouble in 2011-12, which began with a herniated disk between the L5 and S1 vertebrae that occurred while he was doing weights work in the gym in July 2011. He was able to start the World Cup season and even produced some strong results, leading to what would have been a career year. In Oslo in February 2012 he qualified for the 15km mass start race and finished 10th. He also recorded his best-ever World Cup result, finishing ninth in the 10km sprint, and was the top-ranked Canadian in the men’s World Cup standings.

But pushing through the injury also hurt him and he was unable to compete at the 2012 World Championships. He underwent surgery in April but by August 2012 the disk had re-herniated, necessitating a second surgery.

In August 2013, Green competed at the North American Rollerski Championships, his first competition since the Oslo World Cup a year and a half earlier.
