Bakuriani May Host 2022 World Championship in Biathlon

Bakuriani may host the 2022 World Championship in Biathlon. Ski-jump restoration and biathlon track designing works are underway in Bakuriani, Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili noted.

“Currently 8 rope-ways are being constructed and this is an unprecedented fact in the history of Georgia. Aqua-park analogical to the one at Tbilisi Sea is also being constructed in Bakuriani for both winter and summer seasons. Moreover, French experts are designing the biathlon track, 1000-seat palace for hockey. We will also restore a ski-jump in Bakuriani. All invited experts ask us whether we are getting ready for the Olympic Games, because, in other case, it is impossible to launch and implement similar galloping resorts development project in the country.

We tell them that, naturally, we are getting ready for the Olympic Games and 8-10 years later we may think of hosting serious tournaments. In 2022 we want to host the World Championship in Biathlon in Bakuriani and we have launched special preparatory works in this respect”, the Georgian Prime Minister noted.
