BWCH odds – Get the Best Odds at Biathlon WC

From 9 to 21 February 2021, Slovenia will host IBU World Championships Biathlon. The competition will take place at the biathlon stadium at Rudno Polje in Pokljuka. The organisers are currently promoting the Slovenian competition to the visitors of the world championship in the Italian Anterselva.

On 4 September 2016, Tyumen won the voting during the 12th IBU Congress in Chisinau in Moldova over Pokljuka in Slovenia and Nové Město na Moravě in the Czech Republic. Antholz-Anterselva, withdrew their bid for 2021 championships before the vote took place due to winning of an election for the host of the 2020 event. Just before the Biathlon World Championships 2017 in Hochfilzen, Austria, IBU forced Russia to give back rights due to the doping scandal, for revote process after 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, Korean Republic. On 9 September 2018, during the IBU Congress, Pokljuka was named the 2021 event host city without alternative with 49–1 votes.

Pokljuka truly is a fairy-tale land. This high karst plateau of the Triglav National Park, rising above the magical Bled, is covered in vast spruce forests. Being situated at an altitude of between 1,200 and 1,500 metres, it is the perfect paradise for outdoor activity lovers. Since 1992, it has been the venue of many important international biathlon competitions. That same year, the Pokljuka Biathlon Stadium hosted its first world cup competition, while in 2001 it hosted its first world championship.

The world championship, being the biggest winter sport event Slovenia has held so far, means that the organisers are facing a number of challenges. Biathlon competitors from all over the world will spend 11 days in Pokljuka. In order to organise an unforgettable event that will attract as many supporters as possible, the organisers began working hard on the promotion of the championship back in December 2018, when Pokljuka hosted the first competitions of the new season.

In individual races the top 20 get their hands on the prize money. The winner of each event in the World Cup is rewarded with 15 000 euros, whereas the winner of the overall World Cup receives 28 000 euros. By winning an overall World Cup title in one discipline (sprint, mass start, pursuit) one receives 10 000 euros.

Compared to cross-country skiing, the prize money pool in biathlon is significantly bigger. The winner of an individual event in Cross-Country World Cup will receive just about half the amount in prize money - about 8 800 euros.

The winning team in a four athlete relay receives a total of 24 000 euros (to share), which means 6000 euros per person. Single mixed relay’s winning duo receive 6000 euros each. Top six of each relay are rewarded.

At the end of the season ten best countries (Nations Cup) will be rewarded with prize sums for women and men. The best country will get 50 000 euros and even the 10th best country receives a nice sum, 11 000 euros.

Besides medals, extra earnings is a good motivation for the athletes in the Biathlon World Championships, where 112 000 euros is rewarded in one start. The total sum is divided between 15 athletes to finish first. The top three receive 25 000, 19 000 and 14 000 euros.

The prize sums are nice in the relays as well, since the winning team is rewarded with 28 000 euros. The top six countries in single mixed relay are also rewarded, and the winning duo receives 7 000 euros each.
