Biathlon for New-Comers

Biathlon for Newcomers

New to Biathlon?  The International Biathlon Union (IBU) has put together this fun video to tell you all about Biathlon.

How do the competitions differ one to the other? Was it the sprint with only two shootings? Which one has no penalty loop?

Often it is hard to remember the rules, the distances and the details that differentiate one format to another. To help new viewers of the sport and to entertain Biathlon fans, the IBU has gathered the stars of biathlon to explain about biathlon, showing a newcomer to the sport, while the athletes, busy in all sort of jobs around an event, presented the rules or starred in cameo roles.
