The biathlon combines cross-country skiing and shooting
The winter Olympics kick off this month at Vancouver, British Columbia. You'll see lots of downhill skiing, cross-country, too, along with luge and ice arena events. One that you are not likely to see is one of the most difficult. It is the biathlon, which combines precision rifle shooting and cross country skiing. It is an individual as well as a team competition. The U.S.A. has a very competent team that scored well four years ago in Turin, Italy.
