One of the most exciting sports to take place at the Winter Olympics is back again.
Biathlon made its debut at the 1960 Winter Olympics in Squaw Valley, California, and has been a part of every Winter Olympics since.
When athletes went through an interrupted skiing course due to frequent stops to shoot at a series of targets, the Biathlon proved to be one of the most challenging, yet exciting, Winter Olympics events.
At the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics, 33 medals were awarded spread across 11 different countries, and this year, 33 medals were also won for scramble activities, for a total of 11 events – each for men and women, plus a mixed team event. .
All triathlon events will take place at the National Biathlon Center in the Zhangjiakou competition area for 14 days. It is one of three newly built venues in the Guyangshu Cluster, and has a capacity of 6000 spectators.
Here’s how you can watch all of the Biathlon action at the Beijing 2022 Olympics, along with streaming information, Team America outlook, and other athletes to watch:
