How to get started in Biathlon

Australia has a thriving Biathlon community who welcome anyone who wants to participate. Biathlon caters for all age groups; juniors, adults, masters (over 35) and veterans (over 55). Some biathletes go on to train and compete overseas while others just do it in Australia for fun.
