Biathlon first appeared in the Olympic Winter Games in 1960, two
years after the first World Championships. The first World Cup was held
in 1977-78. Only WC and World Champs races and OWG with GBR participation are listed.
In the early days of the sport a number of "international"
military and civilian races were held, but these are not recognised as
official IBU (UIPMB) events.
