- Perhaps the most demanding of all ski disciplines, the biathlon combines speed and stamina with precision shooting. It is also an event at which Norwegians, the masters of cross-country skiing, excel. The World Cup is held at nine different venues throughout Europe and culminates in March in Norway. This event provides spectators with a great opportunity to see the world's best biathletes gritting their teeth and fighting for gold. See websites' "events" sections for dates and complete yearly particulars.
