The programme of competitions has been updated for the previous Winter Universiades to arouse more interest among spectators and for TV broadcasting, and FISU has always endeavoured to keep developing the biathlon competition with IBU.

Today’s biathlon competitions are organised for men and women as follows:

Individual 20km
Sprint 10km
Pursuit 12.5km
Mass-start 15km

Individual 15 km
Sprint 7.5km
Pursuit 10km
Mass-start 12.5km

Relay: Mixed Relay 2x6 km W + 2x7,5 km M

At the 2009 Winter Universiade in Harbin, the competition included Mixed Relay for the first time. This gave countries with fewer competitors more opportunities to participate.

The competitions are always supervised by the FISU Technical Chair and the IBU Technical Delegate, who chair all technical meetings concerned. All tracks must follow the requirements of IBU and get an IBU license.
