Margaux, can you introduce us to your team?
Yes, of course. We are 12 colleagues between 25 and 55 years old, however, despite the differences in our age, physical shape or skiing level, we are all on a equal footing when it comes to biathlon.Those who knew how to ski didn’t necessarily know how to shoot and vice versa!
Where can we try out biathlon?
For us, it was at Contamines-Montjoie where they have a slope and you can shoot air rifles under supervision;you can also try out laser rifles if you are less comfortable or with children.
How does it work?
It’s a cross-country ski trail where you stop to shoot targets.For every missed target you must do a penalty loop.Therefore, you mustn’t go too fast otherwise you could have to ski more.You must be strategic.We started with prone position shooting (it’s not easy to manage the position of the skis on the feet so we had a good laugh), then we got to our feet to make things even harder...This doesn't have the same results.
Was it the first time you had done it?
