International Biathlon Union

When the International Biathlon Union, headquartered in Salzburg, Austria, decided to raise the profile of their Olympic sport, AFP-Services came up with an idea: why not “embed” a video-journalist to cover the entire BMW IBU World Cup season, from start to finish? Sports reporter Thibaut Drapier – a winter sports enthusiast – was the ideal person for the job.

Working in collaboration with Eurovision, Thibaut not only covered the competitions, the post-event press conference, and what to look for in upcoming events. He also went behind the scenes for portraits of the athletes, their coaches and staff, and the volunteers that bring the sport to life.
