Rifle shooting and cross-country skiing in a single event? That's the biathlon for you. It's not for the faint of heart, that's for sure -- and there were more than a few epic performances from the 2022 Beijing Games.

We had brothers in arms -- and on the podium together. Two athletes, a man and a woman, won four golds apiece. (Can you guess which country they represent?) We had sisters powering a relay team to gold and a last-minute steal to top the podium.

See some of the top biathlon highlights at the Winter Olympics below, along with a flash from the past, and get a little 101 on the sport if you need an introduction.
