The common thread of IBU Summer Biathlon is that the host nation dominates the podium. Last weekend’s roller biathlon event was no exception. IBU Roller Cup 1 was held in Kontiolahti, Finland, and Finn favorites Kaisa Makarainen and Jarkko Kauppinen won both the Sprint and Pursuit competitions.
Roller Biathlon uses the same distances as winter biathlon: the Sprint is 7.5 km for Women and 10 km for Men, and the Pursuit is 10 km for Women and 12.5 km for Men.
