Biathlon usually refers specifically to the winter sport that combines cross-country skiing and rifle shooting. Other popular variants include summer biathlon, which combines cross-country running with riflery, and biathle, which combines running with swimming. This sport has its origins in an exercise for Norwegian soldiers, as an alternative training for the military. (wikipedia)
