The Biathlon World Championship will be held 3–13 March at Holmenkollen in Oslo. This year the championship is expected to host around 400 participants from almost 50 countries. The biathlon has grown in popularity in many countries since the first world championship was hosted by Saalfelden, Austria, in 1958. The first world championship for women was held in 1984. The biathlon competition format has been developed in close cooperation with the television companies, and this has contributed to raising the popularity of the sport.
