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.

Extractions: Description and history of Biathlon - how the sport evolved... This page was last updated 11 February 2000 - Under construction Biathlon is a Winter Olympic Sport which combines cross country skiing with precision target shooting. There is also a warm weather variant called Summer Biathlon which replaces skiing with running. In a typical Winter race, a Biathlete is required to ski with his or her rifle over a set distance to a shooting range, where five shots at five knockdown targets 50 m down range are taken from prone position. Depending on the format, either a time penalty or penalty laps are assessed for missed shots. The racer then skiis another loop, and comes back to the shooting range for another set of shots - this time from a standing stance. Again penalties are assessed for missed shots. The biathlete then skiis a final loop to complete the race. A more complete description of the various race formats may be found here Though a seemingly unlikely combination of events - one is an aerobic activity which requires strength, speed, and endurance; the other is a passive activity which requires concentration and a steady hand (difficult after you've been skiing all out!), the biathlon concept evolved from two activities which have a long history - hunting and winter warfare. 1994 Olympic Postcard Rock paintings depicting hunters with bow and arrow moving on sliding timber have been found near Roedoey, Norway which date back to the Neolithic age (about 3000 BC). However, the first written descriptions of hunting on skiis come from Roman, Greek, and Chinese historical writings. These include such well known authors as the Roman poet Virgil, who described hunting on skiis in 400 BC.

He might be a little fatigued, but he's far from finished. Bjoerndalen overcame two shooting mistakes to win the gold medal in the men's 20-kilometer biathlon Monday, just two days after finishing sixth in the 30-kilometer freestyle cross-country event.
Extractions: HISTORY Unlike many other winter sports, biathlon can be traced to prehistoric time. Biathlon arose from the basic need to hunt while traveling quickly over snow. Rock paintings dating back to the Neolithic age, around 3,000 BC, depict hunters with bows and arrows moving on sliding timber. 1700 to 1718: The modern sport develops from cross-country soldiers who patrol the borders of the Scandinavian countries during the Great Scandinavian War. Norway helps begin the tradition of the competitive biathlon. Two Norwegian cross-country guard companies organize the first recorded biathlon competition. The Norwegian military holds a race in Oslo. The Norwegian King's Guard unit hosts a race similar to the one in 1912. The King's Guard race still takes place annually. Biathlon, called "military patrol," appears as a demonstration sport at the first Olympic Winter Games, held in Chamonix, France. Organizers drop biathlon from the Olympics due to anti-military sentiment from World War II. Sweden proposes to call the sport biathlon and keep participation open for civilians.
Extractions: Ole Einar Bjoerndalen won three individual events in addition to the team gold. AP MIDWAY, Utah (Ticker) The star brought out the king and was given the royal treatment by his teammates. Ole Einar Bjoerndalen on Wednesday became the third athlete in Winter Olympic history to win at least four gold medals in one appearance, anchoring Norway's 4x7.5-meter biathlon team to victory. Expecting the historic achievement, Norwegian King Harald was one of the 15,000-plus fans to brave a driving snowstorm at Soldier Hollow. The king wasn't disappointed by his star athlete, who became the first Winter Olympian to win four golds since American speed skater Eric Heiden claimed a record five in 1980 at Lake Placid. "This is very special," said Bjoerndalen, who swept the three men's individual events and joined Soviet speed skater Lydia Skoblikova as the only other four-time gold medalists in Winter Olympic history. Frank Luck anchored Germany to a silver medal in 1 hour, 24 minutes, 27.6 seconds, and Raphael Poiree ran the final leg for bronze medalist France, which finished in 1:24:36.6.

Extractions: US Men 15th in Olympic Biathlon Relay About biathlon About USBA Biathlon community Calendar ... Support/join USBA The final biathlon competition of the Salt Lake Olympic Winter Games found the US Men's 4 X 7.5K Relay team in 15th place out of 19 teams at the Soldier Hollow finish line today. On a day with wet, heavy snow falling, all of the athletes struggled on the course, but the US men also lost their shooting touch. They needed 18 extra shots to complete the race and incurred two penalties. Jeremy Teela (Anchorage, AK) led off in a relay competition for the first time in his career. Admitting that he was "nervous," Teela needed all three extra rounds to clean prone. He then skied himself back into the race, but used the three extra rounds standing and incurred one penalty. He said that the skiing was "OK, because we have all of the right skis and were prepared for the new snow. But I really hated to miss that standing shot." Jay Hakkinen, the other Alaskan on the men's team, is usually an accurate prone shooter, but not today. Hakkinen used three extra rounds in prone, and only one in standing. Despite using four extra rounds, he was over 30 seconds ahead of his teammates for his leg. Hakkinen characterized the performance of the relay team after the competition. He stated, "We really haven't focused on the relay for over two years, so this competition was simply a culmination of the Games for us. We've had a great Olympic Games with some of our best results ever. Our team is looking forward to doing well in upcoming World Cups. For me, I'm just glad to be competitive again. I had the third best time in the Pursuit and I consider that my paper medal! But seriously, the crowds really inspired our performances and we hope that they will continue to follow our sport as we prepare for Torino."
