BREAKING BOUNDARIES - A campaign developed by the IBU to portray inspiring and self-confident women working in different job positions within the biathlonfamily. Goal is to show the range of different jobs in biathlon by portraying women in a personal and authentic way in order to attract more women for such positions in the future.
Women are playing and have played a major role in developing the sport of Biathlon, but there is a lack of female leadership in National Federations and the coaching staff, officials, referees and volunteers. This is something the IBU want to address firmly in the future.
