For the first time in its history, the Tyumen Region hosts an IBU World Cup event. It will be the final chord in the Olympic season of 2018. The schedule of the Tyumen event includes sprint, pursuit and mass start.
Tyumen is well known in the biathlon world for its athletes who represent our region at various competitions. In recent years, our region has also proven itself to be a good venue for international competitions. The Pearl of Siberia successfully hosted the Summer World Biathlon Championships and the European Championships. The world biathlon and skiing leaders competed for the prizes of the Governor of the Tyumen Region and for the victory at the Champions Race. At the days of competitions, the stadiums are always full – thousands of spectators of different ages watch the shooting skiers perform, equally warmly greeting athletes from all the different countries.
I am convinced that this time too, we can expect a bright sports celebration, vivid emotions and unforgettable experience watching the strongest athletes of the world!
Governor of the Tyumen Region,
