  1. What an awesome comeback for Vita 3 years without competitions because of a back injury & giving birth to a baby (she's been training for 2 years after recovery though). Thanks to Marie for giving advices to Vita on how to combine pregnancy & biathlon. + before the race she had a chat with another mommy Weronika Nowakowska who's going to start there as well. imho Vita & Valj won't reach Dzhyma's level next season)) but it will be a crazy competition for the last 2 places in the Olympic team 4sure. ps. Valj Semerenko finished her season (as planned). Olena Pidhrushna became ill in Korea so she decided to finish her season too. Both didn't start their summer trainings well (Valj fully skipped all summer work) so here's the result Vita said she's not going to risk with her health and World Cup in Oslo would be too much for her. She's putting a stake on preparations for the Olympics.
  2. What a long jump)) Elvis left the building (( Congrats to Albania o_0 Losing by 1cm is not the best thing, but yesterday's WCH qualification standard is awesome for him, just like 3 jumps past 8m today.
  3. Didn't expect that from Levchenko, she was so close in her 2nd attempt 0_o. It was only the 2nd start for Okuneva this season))
  4. Finally! 8.18 for Nykyforov he's been ready for such jumps for 2 years, gosh I witnessed so many failed jumps from him ... can't stop facepalming every time I see his run-up I hope his technics will become more stable. Overall having 4 guys who had jumped past 8m but didn't qualify to the Olympics was awful((
  5. Congrats to the 3rd best team of the race Pidhrushna was in the start list originally but skipped the race because she felt sick ... a shitty result in the relay is coming
  6. Vita Semerenko is training in Otepää right now and she will debut in the IBU Cup there in March
  7. speaking about luck Dzhima had an involuntary shot o__0 (VERY rare thing in biathlon but it happens) in the individual race which cost her a medal. Varvynets - her bullet got stuck in the relay.
  8. If Varvynets didn't count crows at the last shooting... Merkushina Pidhrushna And of course unbeatable Germany In the rare moments when I wasn't hyperventilating I cheered for Slovakia, USA & Belarus
  9. All Kazakh doping tests are thankfully negative.
  10. Virolainen who was in the preliminary start list was sent home. Supposedly because she didn't feel well.
  11. Russian fans attacked even German instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/BQTTnmmhfJl/?hl=en "Fourcade is a bitch", "Arabian wh*re" etc. They left death threats on Anaïs Chevalier instagram yesterday. In VK Ukrainians are being called "nazies" by them (as always) and being offered to "suck French c*ck"
  12. According to our president of the federation 7 Kazakh biathletes are under suspicion after the DNA test.
  13. On this video it looks like Maillet appeared in front of him (while Quentin was moving to the right like he was supposed to) and Fourcade wanted to take Shipulin's position (at 11th second) but Shipulin moved to the right from Loginov and appeared right in front of Fourcade. He had no other choice but to move in front of Loginov. What surprised me is that Loginov kept going closer to the center instead of moving to the left. Unintentionally of course.
  14. Loginov apparently unintentionally didn't turn aside. Russians flied a protest and they watched it from different cameras & admitted there was nothing intentional from Fourcade.
  15. Nope, it was before that.
