Submit A Special Request Olympic Sports History BIATHLON The Biathlon, which combines cross-country skiing and rifle shooting, originated in Norway as a training exercise for soldiers. The first known competition took place in 1767 between companies of guards who patrolled the border with Sweden. Late in the 19th century, local rifle and ski clubs in Norway and other Scandinavian countries practiced the sport to keep their members prepared for combat. An early form of the Biathlon, called "military ski patrol," was a demonstration sport at the first Winter Olympics in 1924, and it was a medal sport in 1928, 1936, and 1948. Because few countries participated, and the few that did participate had trouble agreeing on the rules, the sport was dropped from the Olympics. However, the Union Internationale de Pentathlon Moderne et Biathlon was founded in 1948 to standardize rules for both the Biathlon and the modern pentathlon. The first world championship was held in 1957 and Biathlon was added to the Winter Olympic program in 1960.

It was formally introduced as an Olympic sports winter event in 1960 though it had made many demonstration appearances since the first Winter Sports Olympics in France. See the history of the Olympics There are three events in Olympic Bobsledding: two-man, four-man and two-woman. Sleds that look similar to the modern day bobsled have been raced for more than 200 years. Some historians say the sport started in Switzerland in the late 1800s when someone put runners on a tobbagan to get more spead. Early racerswould bob back and forth in an effort to get more speed. It failed to increase the speed but the name stuck. Probably the most famous bobsled team of all was the 1988 Jamaican bobsled team. On January 5, 1898 the organized competition was held with five-passenger sleds. Two of the passengers had to be women. The winter sport became an Olympic sport when it was included in the first Winter Olympics at Chamonix, France, in 1924.
