I love Nordic skiing, and shooting, but have been unable to ever compete in Biathlon. One thing or another kept me from the sport.

So... I ski. I shoot. And I follow biathlon as best I can. Right now 25 year old Johannes Boe is atop the game. Just watched a video of his convincing win in Czechoslovakia.

The competitors ski a lap
Go prone, shoot five shots
ski a lap
go prone, shoot five shots
ski a lap
from standing, shoot five shots
ski a lap
from standing, shoot five shots

Boe shot clean, twenty hits, no misses. He took his time on the shooting, trying for perfection, 'cause he knows he's the fastest Nordic skier in the biathlon world right now. Finished more than 30 seconds ahead of the next guy!

I'd rather be competing in the biathlon than watching it. But it's interesting to see anyway.

One must admire those who compete in this great sport. My skiing leaves much to be desired, however.

Ya, my shooting is pretty good. My skiing isn't anywhere near what it used to be... Sigh...
