With 11 medals across 4 Winter Games, Nils-Erik Ulset will have high hopes for PyeongChang 2018.

He had a strong season last year, coming third in the standing World Cup rankings after being edged out of second place in the final World Cup race by Canada’s Mark Arendz.

And he will hope to carry that form into PyeongChang as he goes for medals in both the individual and team races. Here are the reasons Ulset thinks you should watch the Winter Games.


“It’s a good chance to see high level, competitive sport – it will be really exciting!”


“Biathlon is always exciting – you can have a good race on the track but if you don’t shoot well, you won’t win!”

Unique moment

“How often do you get to see winter events in South Korea! It’s the only biathlon track there.”

The Paralympic Winter Games will take place in PyeongChang from 9-18 March 2018.
