In the relay, you can use replacement cartridges, charging by hand, in 3 pieces for each firing line. TV ratings and the number of broadcasts since 1999 , the renown of biathlon on television has increased by more than 3-fold (Figure left). In the case of the total number of viewers sezone-1999/2000 was slightly larger 200 million, then 10 years later, already 650 million of course, in the years of Interest in the Olympic Games for the World Cup was reduced. Games in Salt Lake City were more popular than in Turin. In general, the final two Olympic cycles were a general audience – about 500 million, but even in these non-Olympic season rating games was a bit more than 100 million in our first press conference, President RBU Mikhail Prokhorov has suggested that "the biathlon will get prime-time when overcome the barrier of two billion viewers." The current 650 million constitute about one third of the plan. The number of seasonal broadcasts (in hours) for 10 years has increased 4-fold – from 300 to almost 1,200 hours in the new season (figure). Almost every year on television all the more biathlon. Exceptions were only sezon-2002/03 and two final season.
The graph does not sezon-2006/07, who most quickly, was great. Interest in the race for the season to the audience's interest in biathlon for the season is not permanent. For example, for the three final , the second time the World Cup twice been less attractive to the viewer than the 1st (left graph). Interest to the viewer steps can be carried out in the form of mini-plates, where the '+' – a growing number of spectators, and '-' – their reduction. For the sake of the latter season it will be as follows: = (stage 1) – (2) + (3) + (4) – (5) – (6) – (7) + (8) + (9). Income reaches a peak during periods in Oberhof, Ruhpolding and is gradually reduced by 6-7 steps and then grows to the final race. The lowest rating broadcasts for the three age groups – a step in the Vancouver-2009. Race came at night European time.
An important argument, not to give in advance the capital for future games newest record. Gear range of stages in part repeats the graph of popularity of spectator. Perhaps the most amusing part – reducing the volume to the final rounds will not affect the number of viewers. For comparison – the gear range of the first period mira-2008/09 Cup was 105 hours, the final – 75. However, the number of viewers of the 9th period was longer. World Cup 2008 in Ostersund – the most commonly used for the final three years (400 million viewers), although the range of transmission was less Compared with the two former tournaments. Championship-2009 in Korea a little lost on the audience Antholz-2007 (graph in the middle). It's exciting, but the World Cup in Oberhof in 2007, has collected 240 million, and the World Cup 2009 – 300 million Almost equal numbers.
