Ups and Downs of a Biathlon Race by Krisztina Szucs

A biathlon race combines cross-country skiing and rifle shooting. If an athlete misses a shot they need to ski a penalty loop (or in some formats extra time gets added to their total time).

This makes biathlon an intense, unpredictable sport where positions in rankings may change any second. If an athlete is a fast skier but can’t concentrate on the shooting, they can move back even 10-40 positions after a few misses.

This project is all about this ebb and flow.

Sometimes an athlete is in the lead for a long time, but a few mistakes may deprive them of landing in the top 10.
