Australians and New Zealanders have a long-standing friendly rivalry (just don’t mention the Bledisloe Cup). The Inaugural Trans Tasman Junior Biathlon Challenge was an initiative of Australian Biathlon and Biathlon New Zealand. It was held at Snow Farm, New Zealand on 28/29 September, with equal amounts of athletes, fun and enthusiasm! The Kiwis “just” managed to beat beat their cousins from across the Ditch. Plans are already underway for the 2014 event :).
