Canmore Biathlon

Biathlon, derived from the Greek word meaning “two tests”, is an Olympic sport combining cross-country skiing and precision rifle shooting. The sport, which dates to the mid-sixteenth century, became part of the Winter Olympics in 1960. The combination of two different events—skiing and shooting—adds to the unpredictability, suspense, and excitement of the competition.
