NBC Sports Showcase of Biathlon Begins Sunday With BMW IBU World Cup

Nov. 28, 2018, 1:36 p.m. (ET)

The BMW IBU World Cup season begins Sunday in Pokljuka, Slovenia, and NBC Sports will kick off its more than 85 hours of biathlon coverage throughout the 2018-19 season across NBCSN, Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA, NBCSports.com, the NBC Sports app, OlympicChannel.com and the Olympic Channel app.

Team USA is led by two-time Olympians Susan Dunklee and Sean Doherty. Dunklee, who earned silver in the mass start at the 2017 World Championships, is the only American woman to win an individual world medal. Doherty became the first U.S. biathlete to earn three individual medals at a World Championships when he won gold and two silvers at the 2013 World Junior Championships. Doherty has since repeated the feat twice more, at the 2014 and 2016 World Junior Championships.

Fans will have two times when they can watch, live streaming via one of NBC’s digital platforms described below or on scheduled TV coverage on the Olympic Channel or NBCSN.
