    Does Anyone Like Biathlon?!

    I usually watch the Alpine ski circut on TV but the new year brought the end of the universal sports contract with my cable TV.In my ensuing search for a live stream network on my computer I found the live IBU Biathlon sight on my computer .It not only telecasts every event but also does cutural stories on the area and profiles of the athletes.I skiied Biathlon in the Marine Corps and I love the sport.Unfortunately in the USA events are few and far between.Any Biathlon fans out there?

    It is a pretty amazing sport. I do go to the shooting range and it is hard enough getting a good shot while calm but to do so after hard aerobic activity is quite a feat.

    I'm not a fan but this sport does amaze me. When I was small I wanted to train this but I don't know if we've got this in Iceland and if we do, I'm sure it's expensive.

    I love to watch the sport. It's one of the only sports where I enjoy both the women's and men's tournament. Do you have any favourites? I think I like Kaisa Mäkäräinen the most in the women's, and I've always been marvelled by Björndalen although he's been struggling. I also enjoy the explosive style of Thora Berger and the contrast when compared to her brother, Lars Berger.
