Abstract

The successful implementation of biathlon shooting is a necessary condition for overall success in the race. In the biggest competitions, such as the World Cup, World Championship and Winter Olympic Games, even one failed shot on the shooting-range can lead to the elimination of the sportsman from the fight for the victory in the whole race. The main aim of this thesis is to compare successful shooting skills of the men´s team of the Czech Republic within the winners of past world competitions. The goal was to discover the improvement of the successful shooting of the Czech team compared to the control group of winners in the worldwide competitions during two Olympic cycles in the seasons 2002/2003 – 2005/2006 and 2006/2007 and 2009/2010. Base data was used from DATACENTER, widely available on official web pages of the International biathlon organisation IBU. We have assessed 3 basic areas: shooting success, speed of the shooting performance and running time. The running time was assessed for the completion of the study of the successful shooting. Continued failings of the Czech representatives were found in all observed areas. The findings presented should help coaches better work with the athletes especially in the shooting part of the biathlon.
