Cadet biathlon develops power, endurance, strength, skill, precision and calm under pressure for cadets. The sport is a combination of cross-country skiing and marksmanship. But it is not that simple. After skiing fast and hard, biathletes must calm themselves to take accurate and controlled shots at targets 50 meters away. In a single race cadet competitors can ski up to 10 kilometers and shoot 20 targets. For the cadet, the clock is always running. It’s action-packed, physically-demanding and extraordinary to watch.
Biathlon is just one of the many opportunities that 819 has to offer.
