Events[edit]

The program includes a total of 12 events, 6 for men and 6 for women. Competitors are divided into three categories: standing, visually impaired, and sitting. Standing biathletes are those that have a locomotive disability but are able to use the same equipment as able-bodied skiers, while sitting competitors use a sitski. Skiers with a visual impairement compete with the help of a sighted guide and an acoustic aiming system. The skier with the visual impairment and the guide are considered a team, and dual medals are awarded.[1]
