    The biathlon is a competitive winter sport that tests the skills of athletes around the world.  It is a test of one's strength and endurance as you race against time, competitors and yourself through a combination of cross country skiing and marksmanship.  As you ski, your heart pumps vigorously which in turn tests your marksmanship as you shoot at targets over 50 m distances. A wonderful sport to participate in and to watch, especially during the Olympics. read more
