The 1986–87 Biathlon World Cup was a multi-race tournament over a season of biathlon, organised by the UIPMB (Union Internationale de Pentathlon Moderne et Biathlon). The season started on 18 December 1986 in Obertauern, Austria, and ended on 15 March 1987 in Lillehammer, Norway. It was the tenth season of the Biathlon World Cup. The first round of the World Cup was originally going to be held in Hochfilzen, Austria, but the races were moved to Obertauern due to a lack of snow.[1]

Retirements[edit]

Notes[edit]

1. 1 The Wintersport source places Finland 3rd, but after the fifth round of the World Cup, they were at ninth. And so it seems more logical that the Soviet Union placed 3rd as they were at second place before the last World Cup at Lillehammer in which the Soviets did not participate.
