The National Winter Olympic Training Center “Raubichi” will be the main sports ground of the event – The IBU Biathlon Youth/Junior World Championships 2015 (February 18–24), as the center is one of the world’s best biathlon complexes. In the run-up to the championship, in the center an extensive reconstruction was completed whereby the sport complex “Raubichi” has modern world-class equipment and facilities that correspond to all international standards.

The championships will be held in two separate groups:

• youth (aged 19-21 years);

• juniors (under 19 years).

The first world championship among juniors men took place in 1967. The world championships among junior women have been held since 1989. The youth world championships among youth men and women have been arranged since 2002.

In February 2013 the International Biathlon Union (IBU) made a decision to hold the IBU Biathlon Youth/Junior World Championships 2015 in Belarus. The decision in favor of Belarus was due to the country’s top-notch biathlon facilities and outstanding achievements of Belarusian athletes.

The famous training center “Raubichy” was built in Belarus ahead of the World Biathlon Championships 1974 where many top-level international events, cross-country and freestyle skiing events have been held during two decades.

The IBU Biathlon Youth/Junior World Championships 2015 that will bring together over 600 participants will be held at the renewed biathlon stadium:

  • competition tracks length: 1.5km, 2km, 2.5km, 3km, 3.3km, training tracks – 5km (high-quality coating, four lighting modes);
  • a shooting range with 30 targets (Biathlon Target System Kurvinen);
  • modern wax cabins and ski preparation facilities;
  • comfortable changing rooms;
  • outdoor stands designed for 2,500 seats (two large LED displays will be placed in the center of the stadium);
  • judges' pavilion (an information center, a secretariat, commentators’ seats, a doping control area, offices of the International Biathlon Union);
  • press center with the total area of 600 square meters.
