Is Biathlon More Volatile Than Cross Country?

Yes.

That whole shooting bit. ┬áTricky, isn’t it?

So maybe a bit more discussion would be good.  This graph shows the distributions of the median absolute deviations (MADs) by athlete and season, for those athletes who competed in at least five major competitions in that season.

Biathletes, due to wild swings in shooting performance, are much more likely to have results that bounce around from good to bad.
