The IBU Congress today awarded Nove Mesto na Morave (CZE) and Lenzerheide (SUI) the IBU World Championships in 2024 and 2025 respectively, as the federation continues to take positive steps in securing biathlon’s future.
Nove Mesto didn't have any rivals, Lenzerheide - just one - Raubichi (Belarus).
“Lenzerheide is well known with a long history in organizing international snow sports events. As a biathlon organiser, Lenzerheide is a relatively new member of the biathlon family. But it has undergone a rapid and impressive development in recent years by organising multiple IBU events, including the IBU Youth/Junior World Championships 2020. Its impressive application, including nationwide support, a green event approach and a promising legacy concept will make a great World Championships in a snow sport heartland in 2025.”, said Olle Dahlin.
