Links to specific Biathlon programs:
Biathlon originated in Norway in the 1700s, as an alternative training for their military. The combination of cross-country skiing and small bore marksmanship was well-suited to training the Norwegian ski regiments. This challenging sport has evolved over the centuries to become the exciting and dramatic Olympic competition it is today.
