Biathlon Relay Time: How exactly do biathlon relays work?!

Since the final three biathlon races of the Olympics are all relays, I figured this would be a good time to explain to you all how exactly biathlon relays work.  They're a bit different from other biathlon races!  And it will be more fun to watch if you understand what's going on.  











For more about the penalty loop, check out this nytimes article!




The mixed relay is on Wednesday the 19th, the women's relay is in Friday the 21st, and the men's relay is on Saturday the 22nd.  I will be racing in both the mixed relay and the women's relay.  Let the relays begin!

  3. Thank you for what you did. Hopefully we (I'm a fan, not a biathlete though), gain more fans in the US!

  5. I have always been a fan of biathlon but until this year it has not been covered so I could watch. Needless to say I am a super biathlon fan now and Team USA, you are all awesome!

  6. Easy for a rower/rowing fan to become a biathlon fan. Your graphics are great! My favorite is the one you drew showing how a target looks when you're breathing hard. We're cheering you and the rest of the team on!
