Any sporting event made up of two disciplines which, as a winter sport, refers specifically to cross-country skiing and rifle shooting. The so-called modern biathlon combines running and swimming but, when no Olympic-sized pool is available, a biathlon may consist of running and biking, usually bicycling and running—i.e., it is a triathlon without the swimming
