Champions race in Moscow

After one race in Luzhniki, the main biathlon show of Russia comes back to Olympiyskiy, where everyone will feel more comfortable and warm. The best people of peloton, more than a hundred singers and artists, three horses for award ceremony, ice podium, décor in old-Russian style, Kremlin towers with chimes under the roof – the most theatricalized and peaceful biathlon show will happen on Saturday.


Two thirds of the 1.5 km track will be placed in surrounding of the arena – the track will be made exclusively for the race. However, the most important events – start, finish, shooting and award ceremony – will happen under the roof.

The issue with snow is solved – while biathletes were fighting for the world cup scores in Khanty-Manisysk, one special snow cannon prepared a surface – 6500 cubic meters of snow should be enough for the race. By the way, one of the features of the Champions race 2011 – loop at the track – is still there.


The format has almost remained unchanged. Director of the Champions race Alexander Pak believes that constant program is one of the most important factors of the interest from spectators. Women’s and men’s mass starts one after another, and mixed relay as a culmination.



There is a reason for organizers to be proud of themselves – debut visit to Moscow of Tora Berger, who won everything this season. By the way, it is the first time, when both winners of the World cup’s total will participate in the race. Martin Fourcade is also here.
