Zebastian Modin 13: a biathlon championship: “A good step for parasport”


Zebastian Modin competed together with Nicolina Lindqvist. The duo came in 13th place out of the 22 teams that competed.

– I have a lot left to do as a biathlete so it was a bit swaying with the shooter but they felt good to go. It felt fun to be involved, everyone has been so positive and it feels like a good step for the parasport but also for me to be able to get better, says Zebastian Modin to SVT Sport.

Zebastian Modin usually competes in cross-country skiing and in class B1, which is for people with no or almost no vision. In the tracks he has a guide with him and the shooting is also different. He listens to sounds and shoots with a laser at a distance of 10 meters.

– It is a tone that gets louder and louder the closer I get and at the top in the middle, so I put on a pair of headphones when I enter the dike, says Modin.

Can be more biathlon

Modin already has three silver and two bronze medals in cross-country skiing from the Paralympics. But there may be more biathlon for him.

– Length is still what I am best at, but I can hopefully get better at biathlon and even out those, he says.
