The 2011 IPC Biathlon and Cross-Country Skiing World Championships took place 2–11 April 2011[2] in Khanty-Mansiysk, Russia. IPC stands for International Paralympic Committee. This was the first time these championships were hosted in Russia,[3] and the first time the championships were hosted in the same city as the IBU Biathlon World Championships which was held in Khanty-Mansiysk from March 3 to March 13, 2011.

Skiers competed in sitting, standing or visually impaired classification categories in various biathlon and cross-country skiing events.

The Opening ceremony was held on March 31,[4] and the Closing ceremony was scheduled to be held on April 10.[5]

Canadian Brian McKeever competed at the Championships without his brother Robin McKeever as his sighted guide, who recently had knee surgery.[6]

The Championships can be seen free at IPC's internet TV channel ParalympicSport.TV as video on demand.[7]

Within each category (sitting, standing, visual impairment) there are skiers with various classifications (for example B1, B2 and B3 in the visual impairment category). There are different percentage factors for each classification.[11][11][12]
