Whistler Adaptive and Whistler Sport Legacies are introducing biathlon experiences and training at Whistler Olympic Park for standing skiers, sitting skiers and athletes with a sensory disability. Biathlon is a sport in which participants combine cross-country skiing with rifle marksmanship. Athletes skate a short ski loop, fire 5 rounds at the biathlon target and head off again around the ski loop. There are various formats but the ultimate goal is to ski fast and shoot straight. A combination of free-technique cross-country skiing or sit skiing and small-bore rifle marksmanship, biathletes develop a balance of stamina and stability. Visually impaired biathletes ski with a guide and use a rifle with sound indicators for accuracy to then shoot a laser beam at the target.
