Summer Biathlon Super series - Sydney
The Summer Biathlon Super series is on again this February at the Willoughby netball courts. The series consisted of 3 races spread over consecutive Sundays. The format is based upon the Winter Biathlon Individual race. 5 laps of roller-skiing with shooting with a laser (prone, standing, prone, standing) in-between each lap. There was a penalty for each miss.
A points system was devised to allow everyone to have a chance of winning the series regardless of age or gender.
