Australian Biathlon (not) in the Winter Olympics

Australia has two IBU and World Cup level athletes at the moment; Darcie Morton (VIC) and Jill Colebourn (NSW). Unfortunately they won't be competing in the Bejing 2022 Winter Olympics. It is very competitive to get a spot in the Olympics. It is not just based upon an athlete's own performance. Places are allocated by nation, so the strongest nations such as France and Norway get guarranteed spots. Australia had the potential to get a wildcard entry if one of the stronger nations gave up their place. Sadly this didn't happen.


In the meantime please enjoy the Biathlon races on TV. In Australia you can view the Olympic Biathlon live and as replays for free on the 7plus app or Channel 7.
