BWCH odds – Get the Best Odds at Biathlon WC

After the World Cup competitions in biathlon and tobogganing this winter, Oberhof is ready for the double world championships in these disciplines in 2023 (08 - 19.02.2023).

Thuringia's sports minister, Helmut Holter, emphasized during an online press conference after a cabinet meeting on the work of the “Oberhof World Cup location” control group that the world's best athletes had been provided with first-class conditions despite ongoing construction work.

Proof of this is that Oberhof is already firmly anchored in the international competition calendar in both biathlon and tobogganing beyond the 2023 World Championships.

The State Government’s World Cup and Oberhof Commissioner, State Secretary for Finance Hartmut Schubert, reported on the progress of construction. Among other things, the grandstand wing, the shooting range and technology building, the athletes tunnel and the route network are largely finished. In future, 16,500 spectators will be able to watch the competitions in the arena and a further 11,000 visitors along the route.

During the world championships, the Oberhof organizers specifically focus on climate-friendly approaches. For example, the transfer to the competitions by public transport (train and bus) from a radius of at least 50 km on selected routes is included in the ticket price.

When US Ski and Snowboard banned fluorinated wax in October 2020, it said that the perfluorooctanoic acid compounds - which make up these products - "have been scientifically studied for their negative environmental and health impacts".

The European Union banned certain fluorine compounds in July 2020. In June 2021, the IBU banned National Federations and wax companies from "possessing, applying, using, selling, giving-out or trading" any products containing C8 fluorocarbons at all IBU-sanctioned events. However, it continued to allow low chair fluor C6 products to be produced, sold or used.

The organisers of the 2023 World Luge Championships start their advance sales together with the biathletes. On the newly renovated track in the LOTTO Thuringia EISARNEA, the spectators can expect a rendezvous of the international luge elite for a good week. Among them are also numerous athletes who are at home on the track at the Rennsteig. Those who want to cheer on the luge aces already during the training runs from Tuesday to Thursday can do so with a day ticket starting at 8 euros. For the races from Friday to Sunday, track tickets cost 20 euros and grandstand tickets 25 euros. Also on offer are 2 or 3-day tickets, which are priced from 38 to 60 euros, or VIP tickets, which are priced between 140 and 160 euros.

After most Olympic sports banned athletes and teams from Russia and Belarus, biathlon stepped up the isolation by banning its member federations from the countries. The IBU also noted the Russian military invasion “has stopped the activities of the Ukrainian Biathlon Federation” so it would be unfair for the “attacking countries” to enjoy membership rights while biathlon in Ukraine is disrupted. The decisions, which can be challenged at the Court of Arbitration for Sport, will be reviewed “in the event of a change of circumstances” in Ukraine, and at the IBU congress in September, the governing body said.
