And what is biathlon, you ask?
Technically, it could be a combination of any two sports. However usually, it refers to the particular combination of cross country skiing and shooting.
As if Oslo hasn’t already been chock full of skiing events this month, the Biathlon World Cup began today and continues through the weekend at the brand new, hyper-modern arena at Holmenkollen.
If you’re into biathlon, or skiing, or shooting, or just watching the world’s top athletes prove their skills, speed and expert markmanship, you don’t want to miss this. Holmenkollen is always packed full of lively, cheering people and always – ALWAYS – has the best atmosphere.
