However, they still have not had time for a proper celebration.  Henkel commented, “Actually, we did not see each other for a couple of days after that.” “I think the party will be after the season,” Burke added.

Lake Placid and Oberhof

Of course these two accomplished athletes have a life outside of biathlon, split at times between Lake Placid, New York and Oberhof, Germany. Burke, said, “In the past few years, Andrea has convinced me to paint every room in my house.” When asked which place they prefer, Burke quickly said, “Lake Placid!” Henkel was a bit more non-committal but said, “Lake Placid is really nice…” TV sat down this week with this biathlon couple to talk about their recent success and life beyond biathlon in “Medals, Fishing and a Few Laughs with Tim and Andrea."
