Video: Norwegian Biathlete Johannes Thingnes Bø on Why His Richard Mille RM 67-02 Hits the Mark
As a combination of arduous cross-country skiing and on-point rifle marksmanship, the Nordic biathlon is arguably the most demanding winter sport in the world. Fitness is pushed to the limit when, after a strenuous cross-country ski journey, the biathlete drops to the snow to compete in precision target-shooting, where even a slightly quickened heartbeat can play havoc with shooting accuracy.
And Norwegian biathlete Johannes Thingnes Bø, with his 66 individual World Cup victories and 5 Olympic gold medals, is one of the all-time greats.
I interviewed the elite athlete in Courchevel about the significant benefits of his RM 67-02 and about the audacious story that brought him to Richard Mille in the first place (Hint: He basically cold-called them after he won his first World Cup crown).
Johannes Thingnes Bø wears a customized RM 67-02 sporting the colors of his native Norwegian flag. Learn more at the Richard Mille website.
