  1. Biathlon 2017 - 2018 Discussion Thread

    If Oeystein's there, I would say that's pretty realistic
  2. [OFF TOPIC] General Chat

    I thought it might be good to have a general chat thread, just for all kinds of stuff and for some general talk We didn't have it on the old forum, often resulting in these kind of things ending up in all kinds of other threads

    Too bad their daughter isn't
  5. Biathlon 2017 - 2018 Discussion Thread

    I also just noticed 52-year old Uiloq Slettemark is there again as well
  6. Biathlon 2017 - 2018 Discussion Thread

    Yeah...if I was the person responsible, I wouldn't come near her, because she ain't happy about that She tried to let IBU keep it at the name she had in previous seasons (without 'de'), but somehow that didn't work out, annoyingly Jill Colebourn of Australia would participate too, but sadly she has gotten ill and can't compete tomorrow. Hopefully she'll be there in the other sprint in Sjusjoen, she's now part of the same 'team' as the Brazilians (with the Brazilian/Australian cooperation) and from what I've heard she's a nice person, so I'm rooting for her as well starting this season
  7. Doping Cases and Bans Thread

    That's rather unfair to say about someone who, when not even near his current capabilities, beat Dukurs in the longest track of all in St Moritz. Nikitina is an athlete who wins purely based on her start and then having a decent run, Yun fights for gold with a good start (not even that much better than Dukurs) and very capable sliding. Also, this really seems more like a Skeleton Discussion Thread kind of discussion
  8. Biathlon 2017 - 2018 Discussion Thread

    Start lists for tomorrow are out: Women https://ibu.blob.core.windows.net/docs/1718/BT/SIBU/CP01/SWSP/BT_C51A_1.0.pdf Go #47 and #72 Men https://ibu.blob.core.windows.net/docs/1718/BT/SIBU/CP01/SMSP/BT_C51A_1.0.pdf
  9. Doping Cases and Bans Thread

    Ah, yeah. I hope they just leave those two medals vacant and be done with it.
  10. Doping Cases and Bans Thread

    This all sucks though. Tretiakov vs Dukurs vs Yun promised to be one of the best fights of the entire Olympics and not seeing Nikitina there is going to be disappointing as well.
  11. Doping Cases and Bans Thread

    I don't know what you would base that on, but he's been beaten more and more often by a guy who's only getting better (and utterly destroyed him only last week) and has the all-important home track advantage in Pyeongchang.
  12. Biathlon 2017 - 2018 Discussion Thread

    We've got some 'interesting' weather in Sjusjoen.. I'm not sure what I hope for tomorrow: a bit of a lottery kind of race might increase the chances for the Brazilians to get a good IBU points score (if they shoot well and the rest starts messing up a bit, like Gabi did in the Arber individual until her 4th shooting bout), but seeing as they have brand new rifles and that's actually going pretty well this week (their first week of using them), it might be better if it's not windy and they can actually use their shooting abilities
  13. Winter Olympic Games 2018 Uniforms

    No, absolutely not I still really wish Brazil would have a uniform like alpine skier Nathan Alborghetti (which they really should get for the XC and biathlon competitions btw, THAT would make them stand out as awesome exotics ), but I'm guessing they'll have something rather white with a green and yellow line or something
  14. Winter Olympic Games 2018 Uniforms

    I don't have much against it, but it's so....uninspiring, simple, standard. Like, pay 20 euro and you can get exactly the same one in the shop apart from the Czech logo I always prefer uniforms that show the flags (at least the colours) much more prominent Well if I was a Czech athlete, I would turn it into the much more awesome gold side around 5 seconds after receiving the kit, medal or no medal
  15. Biathlon 2017 - 2018 Discussion Thread

    At least I hope the atmosphere will be better than the last time they were in the USA, when there were like 5 people watching, the TV direction was awful and they planned it in such a time that the last athletes were competing in semi-darkness.
  16. Winter Olympic Games 2018 Uniforms

    Each medalist? You mean every athlete who wants an awesome jacket instead of a boring "everyone has this" kind of white jacket
  17. Winter Olympic Games 2018 Uniforms

    How fantastically creative
  18. Biathlon 2017 - 2018 Discussion Thread

    Plus, this sadly means Kontiolahti with the fantastic Wall of Kontiolahti* is already out again. Annecy (and Tyumen) as well, but meh, don't care about that *which is still nothing compared to the epic climb at the start of the lap in Arber (GER), but alright
  19. Biathlon 2017 - 2018 Discussion Thread

    The cooperation has barely started and they're already getting along well, this is promising Also: my hotel for IBU Cup 2 in Lenzerheide has been booked, and it happens to be the same one as them, so that makes life easy. Now it's a matter of trying to find a place to stay in Livigno and Obertilliach and hoping I can indeed travel with them as planned (since a 2-3 hour car trip is definitely better than a 9-hour train/bus trip)
  20. Speed Skating 2017 - 2018 Discussion Thread

    I believe just the 5 and 10k (and only the women's 5k, not the men's, but I'm not sure about that)
  21. Football 2017 Discussion Thread

    Beautiful goal by Fankaty Dabo of Vitesse in the Dutch Eredivisie today It's just a shame it was in the wrong goal, but hey, details
  22. Weightlifting 2017 Discussion Thread

    That sucks so much.
  23. Luge FIL World Cup 2017 - 2018

    Not really anything, results were mostly influenced by the snow that got stronger towards the end.
  24. Speed Skating 2017 - 2018 Discussion Thread

    Only for the B division. And not 'again'
