Weird Olympic Sports
Skiing and shooting. Together. Is there any need to go on? The biathlon is a strange event primarily because it combines two things you dont see done together in the natural world. Competitors must complete a cross-country race, pause to take five shots at a target, race again, and shoot again, until theyve completed the required number of loops. Poor shots get time added to your final score. The competitor with the lowest combined time wins the gold. Perhaps they should make it interesting and require the athletes to shoot while skiing. It would still be less dangerous than the luge.
