Mixed Relay: It's All About the Mix
As the name says, the mixed relay is a mixed-gender competition, formed with teams of two women and two men.
The competition specifics are, in principle the same as in the regular relays. Women compete over 6km, men over 7.5 km.
The Technical Committee decides in advance who begins the race: the two male athletes or the two female athletes, indicated by (M-W) or (W-M).
