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.

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.
