Biathlon season is coming, and the Russian drug cheats lose appeal

Just three weeks left until boathlon season starts and long-time readers of my blog will know my fascination with the sport. It really is a brilliant sport for betting in-running, especially the sprint and individual disciplines (there are five different types of races). Once the season gets underway, I'll get into explaining more about it. Feel free to go back into my archives from last winter to read about it. The Winter Olympics are in February, so it's worth learning about it.

The two female Russian drug cheats from last season, Albina Akhatova and Yekaterina Iourieva, have lost their appeal against two-year doping bans.

CAS dismisses Russian biathletes' doping appeals

And so they should have to.

  2. Hi Oldo,

    Best place to look for how to trade on biathlon is here - http://betting.betfair.com/education/sports/biathlon/

    For stats, schedules, live scoring - www.biathlonworld.com. On that site you can look up historical records, shooting percentages etc. More details later once the races begin.
