The 6th Biathlon World Championships were held in 1965 in Elverum, Norway.[1] The men's 20 km individual and team were the only official competitions. In these particular championships an unofficial men's 4 × 7.5 km relay was also held. It was a success, and replaced the team competition as an official event in 1966.[2]
