Presque Isle will soon to be the center of international sports attention as the 2016 IBU World Cup Biathlon comes to the city.

The first wave of athletes WAS scheduled to arrive Monday evening at 5;00 at the Northern Maine Regional Airport in Presque Isle. That's been changed. They NOW will be arriving Monday afternoon at 4:10.

The public is invited to help the City welcome the athletes to our community by meeting in a designated spot in the baggage claim area. The Presque Isle High School Band will be on hand to provide live music as the athletes arrive.
