"Biathlon, winter sport in which competitors cross-country ski over a groomed course, pausing at intervals to shoot at targets with a rifle".
The difficulty and excitement of biathlon lie in its diverse physical demands. Skiing demands strength and endurance, while shooting requires precision and calm.
The term biathlon is Greek for 'two competitions', and although it most commonly refers to the winter sport, it is occasionally used to refer to competitions that combine two summer sports, such as bicycling and running.
But the truth is that the sport of biathlon is much more than this!
Thousands of fans confirm this every year when they get the stadiums rocking.
