Ski & Snowshoe Biathlon

The word biathlon is of Greek origin and means "two tests", the combination of skiing or snowshoeing, and shooting. Biathlon is an exciting sport that challenges participants with a diverse range of skills that no other sport requires - the endurance, speed, strength and coordination needed for cross-country skiing and the concentration, focus, accuracy and split second timing needed for accurate and fast target shooting under pressure. Biathlon also teaches people how to use rifles in a safe and non-confronting manner, a point that is emphasized heavily in the sport. What is more, Biathlon is a lot of fun!
