Olympics Biathlon (Cross-country Skiing + Target Shooting), PyeongChang 2018 TV schedule here

Biathlon -- from the Greek: "bi" (two) + "athlon" (contest) -- is a great sport combining two high-intensity disciplines that work at cross-purposes! Cross-country skiing gets your heart pumping and your lungs working overtime, then you have to stop at a shooting position, slow down your body, then concentrate like mad to make your shots with the most futuristic rifles ever!
