Men's relay

Men's relay

It's all about Teamwork

The pressure on individual teammates is high because every individual in the relay competition wants to do their very best for the team.
On the last day of the Biathlon World Cup we will see which nation has the strongest male athletes.

In this discipline, each nation sends its four best gentlemen into the race. Here, the individual performance of one world-class athlete is not enough, but all four biathletes have to make their contribution to stand at the top in the end. This is always very exciting, because there is plenty of tactics and risk-taking - both on the course and at the shooting range - in this competition format.
The relay line-up of the different nations also provides surprises every time. Who will choose the best tactics in Antholz and win the relay? We will find out on the last day.
Men's relay
The relays where the women compete over 6km and the men 7.5 km have four team members competing in succession, each of them shooting twice (once prone and once standing). Contrary to most individual competitions, athletes are allowed three spare bullets to use in case of missed targets If a target(s) remain standing after the three spares, the athlete goes to the 150m penalty loop. The spare bullets are loaded manually, one at time. The winning team is the one crossing the finish line first.
