Information about disciplines:

Sprint - the most short race. It consist of three laps and two shootings. For women one lap - 2,5km, for men 3,3km. If biathlete misses shoot, he should run penalty loop (50m). Sprint - the most common race of the season. Only Canmore and Ruhpolding hasn't it. By results of sprint is formed next race - pursuit.
