Biathlon in August? Yes, at South American Cup 1 in Portillo, Chile!

Just because it is August doesn’t mean that there isn’t snow to be found somewhere. This time of year our friends in the Southern Hemisphere get their turn to have fun on snow, and that includes hosting biathlon events!

The South American Biathlon Championships consist of two events, the South American Cup 1 (which took place in Portillo, Chile) and the South American Cup 2, which will take place in Bariloche, Argentina on 25-28 August. The scores from these two events are added together to determine the South American Champions. What I would give to be covering those events live in person rather than writing about them from Vancouver!

The IBU website has a news release discussing the event, but I haven’t found any complete results.
