    It’s called “Full Contact Team Biathlon”, and the last time it was played the Finns took the gold at the 1940 Winter Games.

    Simo Hayha took the gold in the mens individual category.

    “I liked biathlon better when it known as “The Russo-Finnish War””

    Well basically biathlon was a training technique of the norwegian army. But they did not play it with .22LR, they used stock Mosin-Nagant.

    That would have been an odd rifle for Norwegians to issue.

  • Aurelien

    Well, everybody there had local copies of the Mosin Nagant, or the 98 from Mauser.

  • Aurelien

    My bad, they used the Krag Jorgensen at the time. Finnish issued Mosin-Nagant copies, and Swedes Mauser 98 copies.

  • Smiflty

    You do realize that Mosin-Nagant was already 50 years old at that time and Finland was part of Russia until 1917 don’t you? They made their variant of the Mosin-Nagant.
