Ever wondered what biathlon was? Or what it takes to become a biathlete?


In our latest video, Youth Olympic Games graduate and rising biathlon star Aita Gasparin gives us a glimpse into her sport, which combines cross-country skiing and rifle shooting.

From testing her skis, practising at the shooting range to checking the weather conditions and completing her sprint warm-ups, the Swiss athlete goes through the motions with us as she shows us exactly how she prepares for a big competition.

The 19 year-old also shared with us her passion for competing and the valuable advice her coach gave her: to always smile!

And we are sure this is not the last we will see from Aita.  Now a regular on the elite senior circuit, the rising star has her sights set on competing at the Sochi Olympic Winter Games next year as part of a relay team, alongside her sisters.

So join us in wishing the best of to Aita who’s working hard to achieve her goals, all with a smile!
