In 2016 Tyumen will host Open European Biathlon Championships for the first time. It is a great honor and a serious responsibility for us.
Bright, spectacular, exciting biathlon is one of the most favorite sports among numerous fans. They passionately follow performances of "shooting skiers', their competition on the course and the shooting range.
Regional centre of winter sports “Zhemchuzhina Sibiri” (Pearl of Siberia) hosts a lot of major international competitions. In 2014 Summer Biathlon World Championships took place on its tracks. Currently, it is in active preparation for the European Championship.
I invite you to visit the hospitable Tyumen land and to compete for the medals of the European World Championships 2016.
Governor of the Tyumen region,
