Paralympic biathlon

Paralympic biathlon is an adaptation of biathlon for athletes with a disability. Paralympic biathlon is one of two Nordic skiing disciplines in the Winter Paralympic Games. It is governed by the International Paralympic Committee.

Paralympic biathlon includes standing events, sitting events (for wheelchair users), and events for visually impaired athletes.

Visually impaired athletes use a rifle that use sound to indicate to the athlete how accurate their aim is, and shoots a laser beam at the target.[1]
