One of my favorite winter sports—to watch anyway—is biathlon. For those who don’t know, this is the activity that combines cross-country skiing with target shooting, which on paper doesn’t sound like a compelling mix. But watching the athletes take part in this sport is incredibly fascinating. In this video, we take a deeper dive into what makes biathlon special and provides some insights into just how tough it can be. If you’re already a fan of the sport, chances are you’ll come out with even more respect for the men and women who compete in this discipline. If you haven’t watched biathlon before, you may just find yourself hooked.
