Qualification for senior races in the Biathlon Pathway start with IBU Cup races. Competitors earn points during every race with the winner having the lowest points.
Australian biathletes need to qualify for the right to enter and IBU Cup event. Please refer to the Selection Policy for the current requirements.
The IBU have strict rules about progression onto senior levels of competition such as World Championships and the Olympics but only the very best biathletes with points under 150 qualify for World Cup. The rules are incredibly complex and it's not just the athlete's personal performance, but also accumulated Nation Points that count towards whether a Nation starts at senior events.
The IBU focuses on building Nation's teams with more nation points earned from relay and mixed relay events.
