At tonight’s training, which is one of the last for the season, just over 20 young people aged 10-16 have come to train.
Constantly growing interest
Last winter, the new biathlon stadium was ready in Mora, something that helped the club grow.
But the interest is also noticeable in the rest of Sweden according to the Swedish Biathlon Association and it has been steadily rising over the past ten years.
– It is a sport where many can participate and you can keep them a little longer. They can be good at one or the other moment and thus stay in the sport instead of being knocked out, says Johanna Larsson.
“It was so fun I wanted to keep going”
Filip Åhl is one of those who started biathlon this season.
– Dad and I went by here when they were training and then we asked if I could join. It was so much fun that I wanted to continue.
