Unheard of until recent years, this sport became highly popular at the 1992 Albertville games. Comprising the events of Nordic skiing and rifle shooting, the biathlon is practised by men and women over distances of 10, 15 and 20 km, and in a relay. During the 20 km event, skiers must shoot four times, alternating between a prone and upright position. The ex-Soviet Union countries dominate this discipline, once known as the military patrol race, and which became an Olympic sport at Squaw Valley in 1960.
