The Skiathlon is a discipline that combines nordic skiing, downhill and the biathlon rifle shooting. Nordic skiing features two different techniques: classic and freestyle. In classic nordic skiing, the skis slide parallel along packed-down, groomed trails with two tracks to slot your skis into. If you want to use the skating technique instead, you cannot skate ski inside the ski tracks cut into the trails for classic skiing. Skiathlon is the only sport event in which athletes compete in both techniques.
