Biathlon


The only sporting event to combine cross-country skiing with target shooting, the biathlon is a truly unique sport. Competitors must complete a race course in as fast a time as possible, while also performing feats of marksmanship along the way. Poor aim results in penalties to one's race time. Biathlon has Nordic roots, so it's no surprise that Scandinavian countries tend to dominate the medal count.
