What Exactly is Biathlon?
Team USA Olympian Hannah Dressigacker illustrated this guide to biathlon in 2014 while she was competing in Sochi, Russia. Although European audiences for Biathlon events set viewership records, the sport is just starting to catch on in the United States, and Hannah's goal was to help her followers better understand the sport. Many of us here at Concept2 have tried biathlon, and have a great appreciation for the challenges it presents—not only do you need to be fit and fast, you also need to be able to bring focus and control to the mental challenge of target work when you are tired and breathing hard. And since the Concept2 SkiErg has a Biathlon feature programmed into the PM5, there’s no time like the present to give it a try!
