Biathlon

Biathlon

Biathlon for athletes with physical disabilities was introduced at the Innsbruck 1988 Paralympic Winter Games, and by 1992, athletes with visual impairments were also allowed to compete in the sport, which is a combination of physical endurance on skis and shooting accuracy.

Athletes with visual impairments are assisted by acoustic signals, which, depending on signal intensity, indicate when the athlete is on target.
