And you should watch for Sweden's women curling team. They won gold last olympics, and, before that, they did this: Hammerfall - Hearts of Fire
There are many disciplines in biathlon, but if you watch one, watch a relay: Four men/women in each nation's team. Choose a team to cheer for! The teams start at the same time, the best ranked teams in the first row. Every man/woman shoots twice and skiis 7.5 km/6.0 km. The relays are often exciting, while the standings shift a lot during the competition.
The best bets are Norway, Russia, Germany, Austria, Sweden, Ukraine, France, Belarus and newbie US. For sure I forgot some nations….?
