List Rules Only active athletes still competing in winter biathlon

This list of the best biathletes in the world, is ranked by current standings and the amount of medals received. The winter sport of biathlon is a combination of cross country skiing and rifle shooting - quite a pair of difficult physical feats. Popular during the Winter Olympics, biathletes are in top physical shape and have a steady hand in order to knock out as many targets as possible.

Though these biathletes all compete in the winter, summer biathletes substitute skiing for running (and still paired shoot their rifles). The sharp shots on this list are the best winter biathletes in the world, including Olympic champions and winners of other world events.
