Classification for women this season
The Biathlon World Cup is a series of the largest international cup competitions in both men’s and women’s biathlon. They include performances in the individual race, sprint, pursuit, mass start, relay race, mixed relay, and single mixed relay. After the performances, they carry out the ranking of athletes in the individual disciplines and the total points in all disciplines. At the end of the season, the winner in the overall World Cup standings gets the main trophy of the competition – the Crystal Globe.
Although men started to participate in the World Cup tournament in the 1978-79 season, women joined them only in ten years. The overall score of the 2019-20 Biathlon World Cup for women includes points scored in personal races at the World Cup stages. Also, they count the results of the 2020 World Cup in the Italian Antholz. However, they exclude from the calculations two races in which the least points are scored. Thus, 22 individual races out of 24 will go into the overall classification for women in the 2019-20 season.
