The origins of biathlon in Anterselva go back to the 1970s. Today, Anterselva is one of the most important centres for biathlon in the world.
Anterselva hosted several biathlon world championships in the past, for the first time in 1975, when biathlon was still a marginal sport. With the time passing, biathlon became more and more popular. Today, biathlon is one of the most important winter sports and achieves excellent television viewing figures, especially in Europe.
In the year 2007, the biathlon world championships were held in Anterselva. This time Anterselva attracted worldwide attention with its newly constructed, very modern biathlon centre. In 2020 Anterselva will again be the venue of the biathlon world championships.
