You’ll find answers to those questions and more in the list to follow, where you’ll be introduced to each member of the 2014 U.S. Olympic biathlon team.

The team, which is made up of 10 athletes — five men and five women — will head to Sochi in an effort to bring home gold in their respective events. The sport of biathlon is made up of cross-country skiing and rifle shooting, and three disciplines are contested: pursuit, individual and sprint.

During the 2014 Games, fans will be treated to competition in a new event: the biathlon mixed relay. In this event, men and women will compete together to try to cross the finish line first.

The biathlon events are scheduled to begin on February 8 with the men’s sprint event. You can find a full schedule of biathlon events here.
