2011 World Championships Begin Tomorrow with the Mixed Relay

The 2011 IBU World Championships from Khanty-Mansisyk, Russia kick off tomorrow with a Mixed Relay competition.

Here is the start list for the competition which begins at 06:30 Eastern, 03:30 Pacific. 26 Nations have entered teams into the competition, including the U.S. which is bib 12. Canada has not entered a team.

This Mixed Relay competition is especially important as the International Olympic Committee will decide later this spring whether it will be added as a new event for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.

With the eyes of the IOC looking on to assess the level of competition, the top nations have filled their teams with their best athletes, which should make for an excellent competition and a great start to the World Championships.
