Relay: It 's about Teamwork
The relays where the women compete over 6km and the men 7.5 km have four team members competing in succession, each of them shooting twice (once prone and once standing). Contrary to most individual competitions, athletes are allowed three spare bullets to use in case of missed targets If a target(s) remain standing after the three spares, the athlete goes to the 150m penalty loop. The spare bullets are loaded manually, one at time. The winning team is the one crossing the finish line first.
