INTERNATIONAL BIATHLON UNION INDIVIDUAL COMPETITION The 20 km individual Race is the oldest competition discipline in biathlon. The competitors, who start at 30 sec or at 1 min. http://www.ibu.at/biathlon/competitions.html
Extractions: Competitors fire over a range of 50 m at the same targets as in the individual competition. Each shot must be fed into the chamber from a magazine by a manual action. In contrast to the individual competition for each target they miss the competitors must cover a 150 m handicap loop taking approximately 23 seconds. In the sprint race firing is faster and more risky, because the biathletes believe to have a chance of "catching up" the missed shot in the handicap loop. In addition to the time required by an athlete for each handicap loop he must, however, ski a further 150 m or more than competitors able to shoot whithout missing any the targets. This race is very lively and exiting.

Extractions: 2004 Registration Info and Forms... Odd Man 2004 Results... Pictures of the course... 2004 Results Are In (5K and Duathlon)... Past Results... Because we finish fifth a lot! The whole idea here is to do something off beat, fun, and to try to get away from the over-structured, flat, fast courses and races that we all see so much of. Don't plan on setting a PR on this course; the only thing you can truly plan on is getting very wet and very dirty! Our most recent race took place at the YMCA Camp Ockanickon in Medford on Saturday, March 27, 2004 . Look here for results soon! Go to Results to see how things stacked up in past years! The 1.3.5 concept came from a wacky thought that we could carry this "let's have fun" concept from the planning and set up of the course layout all the way through the post-race awards. Proceeds from the race will benefit YMCA Camp Ockanickon and other charities. If you like the race, and it is as much fun as last year, we will be producing more "Odd Man" races. For this race, please remember that the race field is limited to 150 competitors, so register right now!

HickokSports.com - History - Biathlon This document contains a history of the biathlon, with an account of how biathlon competitions are conducted and a list of all Winter Olympic gold medalists. http://www.hickoksports.com/history/biathlon.shtml
Extractions: Alpha Index Index by Sport History Bits Forum ... Search Table of Contents 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, but the U. S. didn't conduct a national championship until 1965. Following the lead of the international organization, the national governing body was originally the U. S. Modern Pentathlon and Biathlon Association. The U. S. Biathlon Association was spun off in 1980.
