OK, I’m being pedantic, forgive me, its Chinese New Year; but consider the reply above from THEMCCHUCK: The biathlon, then called “military patrol,” has been a part of the Olympics since 1924. The name (and rules) changed to become the Biathlon in the 1960 games. They used to use military rifles, but switched to .22LR in the 1980 games at Lake Placid.
As a military training exercise, biathlon makes perfect sense, and is precisely in the pattern of the ancient Greek Olympics. All the original events were running, jumping and throwing weapons (discus, shot put & javelin).
