  1. Just when you think the things can not be worst and you just can not fall deeper, it will hapen... Our womens team got a flu and a very strong one Kuzmina already travelled back home, Gereková will stay in Antholz untill Sunday to see if she will be able to start in the relay, Ivona Fialková didn´t joined the team yet (she was supposed to train this week and come only for the relay) so we had only 2 biathletes competing today and ofc with bad results, our disastrous positions and the dramatic situation in the olympic qualification gained actually another level...and with current situation with illness in our team is highly probable we will not even send a relay Sunday... it´s starting to be a real disaster for us in the Nations Cup. we are still 17th but only 5 points ahead of Japan and also next places aren´t so far.... total horror, there not any other word to describe all this season so far for our girls.. and Paulína still didn´t meet the starting criterias for 3rd trimester her last chance will be at WCh... same for her sister Ivona at european championships next week... now my question is ...how deep we can still fall ?

  5. Frolunda, Sparta reach CHL Final Frolunda Indians (SWE) and Sparta Prague (CZE) will play the 2016/17 Hockey Champions League. The Match will be played in Goteborg the home place of the Frolunda Indians due to their better record during the competition on Tuesday, 7th February. In the yesterdays semifinals second legs, Frolunda won in Fribourg (SUI) 0-4 (1-9 in aggregate) and Sparta defeated at home Osters Växjo (SWE) 4-0 (6-1 in aggregate). Gothenburg makes third straight Finals appearance The Champions Hockey League Final will be played on Tuesday, 7 February 2017 in Gothenburg between defending Champions Frolunda and first-time finalists Sparta Prague. Czech powerhouse Sparta Prague is the first Non-Nordic team in the Champions Hockey League Final. The eight times Czech champions follow Luleå Hockey (SWE, 2015), Kärpät Oulu (FIN, 2016) and Frölunda Gothenburg – who actually made it to the CHL Final for the third time in a row and will now host the final game for the first time. Sparta defeated the Växjö Lakers (SWE) 6:1 on aggregate in the Semi-Finals, while Frölunda marched through against Fribourg-Gotteron (SUI) with 9:1 on aggregate. The CHL Final will take place on Tuesday, 7 February 2017, in Gothenburg. Frölunda earned the right to play at home due to achieving the best accumulated record (Group Stage + Playoffs). Frolunda Gothenburg 4 – Fribourg-Gotteron 0 (9-1 aggr.) Frolunda Gothenburg came into Fribourg and cruised to a 3-0 shutout victory, propelling the Swedish club back into the CHL Finals. The Indians already had a comfortable 6-1 lead on aggregate ahead of the second leg rematch against the Swiss club, who failed to make a dent in the lead and wasn’t able to get any pucks past Johan Gustafsson, who put up his second shutout of the CHL playoffs. Sean Bergenheim opened the scoring with a goal midway through the first period, and added an assist in the second for a two-point night. Henrik Tommernes, Robin Figren, and Carl Grundstrom rounded out the scoresheet for Frolunda. In the short history of the Champions Hockey League, Frolunda has been a mainstay, having now reached the Finals in all three seasons. Sparta Prague 4 – Vaxjo Lakers 0 (6-1 aggr.) A big road win in ther first leg gave Sparta some breathing room playing at home against Vaxjo, and the Czech club took care of business at the O2 Arena in Prague putting up a 4-0 victory and a trip to the CHL Final. Captain Jaroslav Hlinka and Lukas Klimek led the offence with a goal and two assists each, while Tomas Popperle made 25 saves for the shutout and earned Best Player honours. Sparta put together a 2-0 lead going into the third period, then took advantage of some desperate play by the Lakers to put the game away with back to back goals from Hlinka and Petr Vrana to seal Sparta’s trip to the CHL Final. The victory means that Sparta Prague becomes the first Czech club to reach the CHL Finals. The team will be looking to add one final chapter to what has been a historical run with a victory against Frolunda on 7 February. with files from Champions Hockey League

  17. Thompson and Fiva back on the podium in the second race in Watles The second of this weekend’s back-to-back Audi Ski Cross World Cup competitions in Watles (ITA) took to the Sud Tirolian resort’s sweeping SX track on Sunday morning, and by race’s end it was Marielle Thompson (CAN) and Alex Fiva (SUI) emerging triumphant from a pair of thrilling big final heats. Thompson headed into Sunday’s competition as the ski cross and freestyle overall World Cup leader, despite getting shut out of Saturday’s Watles big final and being forced to settle for fifth place. On Sunday the smooth Canadian was clearly on a mission, looking to steal some momentum back. from the previous day’s winner Sandra Naeslund (SWE). The stage was set for a hard-fought battle between the two ladies big final after the 20-year-old Naeslund took top spot in their semifinal heat, and come time for the big show the two speedsters did not disappoint. While Thompson was able to grab the hole shot, Naeslund would not let her pull away, staying hard on her tails throughout the first 3/4s of the course and making several pass attempts that Thompson was only just able to fend off. However, while it looked like it would go down to the wire between those two ladies, Naeslund got caught in some softer snow just before the final straight and had to watch powerlessly as first Fanny Smith (SUI) and then Marielle Berger-Sabbatel (FRA) slipped by her and on to the podium. “I feel awesome,” said Thompson of her fourth victory in eight 2016/17 competitions, “Today went as good as it possibly could. I was looking for some redemption because I wasn’t very satisfied with the fifth place yesterday, after crashing with no reason in the semifinals. So today it feels really good to put down those runs and I'm happy to go back home with a win.” While Thompson extended her World Cup lead to nearly 200 points, Smith was able to vault into second on the leaderboard in a comeback season that continues to grow more impressive with every race. “I'm really happy about my second place today,” Smith said following the race, “Step by step, race by race, I'm starting to feeling better in my skiing, so I'm confident and looking forward to the next World Cup races.” Also in the midst of an impressive comeback season, Berger Sabbatel’s third place performance was her third podium in the last six races. Fiva scores second 2016/17 win No less exciting then the ladies competition, and surprisingly similar in outcome, was the big final on the men’s side, where Alex Fiva found himself locked in a battle with men’s World Cup leader Jean-Frederic Chapuis (FRA) and Brady Leman that looked like it could have gone three ways, before Fiva was able to take the fast line through the Watles negative turn and leave Chapuis, Leman, and Saturday’s Watles winner Armin Neiderer (SUI) to sort out the final podium spots behind him. “I had a good start in the big final and was up front,” a smiling Fiva said from the finish, “Then at the end of the flat section I felt someone next to me, but I didn't know who it was. So I just put my head down and concentrated on my skiing and I tried to be as fast as possible. It worked out pretty well and it feels amazing!” As Fiva pulled away and into the homestretch Leman was able to take the same high line through the negative turn that he took to score second place in the previous day’s race, and he once again passed Chapuis to slide into the runner-up spot - his fourth such result in 2016/17. With his consistency, Leman is slowly closing the gap on Chapuis for top spot on the World Cup, and now sits just 62 points back. “Obviously I wanted to win,” said Leman, “But to be in the finals two days in a row, and score two second places seems like a really good weekend. I'm really happy with my performance. Today I was really close to passing for the first, but not quite so I'll just try to keep it rolling for the next race.” With Chapuis sliding low as Leman went high, Neiderer spotted an opening through the middle, and he too was able to muscle past Chapuis, taking third on the day and his second podium of the weekend in Watles. With Sunday’s Watles race acting as a reschedule for the cancelled Megeve competition that would have taken place on January 21 the Audi FIS Ski Cross World Cup now has an extended break between races, with the next competitions coming up on February 4 and 5 at a new ski cross World Cup venue in Feldberg, Germany.

  18. IIHF CONTINENTAL CUP 2016/17 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Nottingham writes history First British team to win Continental Cup The Nottingham Panthers also won their third game of the final tournament, 4-1 vs. Ritten, and became the first British team to win the IIHF Continental Cup. The British were more efficient and physically stronger than their opponents and decided the game with three power-play goals. Already after four minutes of play the Nottingham Panthers opened the scoring. With Ritten’s Ivan Tauferer in the penalty box after shooting the puck out of the ice, Matt Carter succeeded from the left side to give the Panthers an ideal start into the game. Ritten tried to come back but didn’t capitalize on its chances and like yesterday made life difficult with penalties. That gave the Panthers the opportunity to play with a man advantage for almost four minutes at the end of the first and the beginning of the second period. 24 seconds after the start of the middle frame Chris Lawrence scored to make it a 2-0 lead for the British team. Nottingham continued to have more chances. During a next power play Erik Lindhagen almost scored the third goal when Ritten goaltender Patrick Killeen seemed almost beaten after a horizontal pass but a miraculous save kept Ritten in the game. And a minute later the home team scored its first goal when Markus Spinell capitalized on a rebound after a shot from Alex Frei. The Italians got their huge chance to tie the game when Andy Sertich was sent to the sin bin for interference and Jeff Dimmen had to follow him just four seconds later after a delaying-the-game call for shooting the puck out of the playing field. But despite the lengthy two-man advantage Ritten was still a goal behind and at 14:16 during a power play British national team forward Robert Farmer scored the 3-1 goal for the Panthers. Ritten tried its best and had more scoring chances during the rest of the game but Nottingham goalie Miika Wiikman had a strong night. With 37.7 seconds left Farmer scored the 4-1 goal into the empty net to make things clear. The Nottingham Panthers had qualified for the Continental Cup Final as the first British team in seven years and winning the competition is the biggest international success for the team and will give it a chance to play in the Champions Hockey League next season subject to formal approval by the CHL board.

  20. Next home win for Kamil Stoch After his win on Saturday, Poland's Kamil Stoch was also the best in Sunday's World Cup competition in Wisla (POL). With jumps of 135.5 m and 128 m (271.7 points) Stoch won close ahead of Norway's Daniel Andre Tande (128.5 m and 134.5 m; 270.5 points), who came in only 0.1 point ahead of Slovene Domen Prevc (130 m and 132 m; 270.4 points). This was the 19th win in the World Cup for Kamil Stoch. The enthusiastic fans in the sold out stadium of the HS 134 Adam-Malysz-hill in Wisla saw an exciting competition under difficult wind conditions. Once again it was a difficult task for the jury due to the changing winds. "The weather conditions were difficult today, the wind was changing and you needed a lot of luck. My second jump was bad, I had a mistake at the take-off. But still I could celebrate my second win and I'm very happy about that. I was working hard during my whole career and I had to go through bad times and a few changes. Now we are on the right track, not only me, the others as well", the winner said after the competition. Second-placed Daniel Andre Tande summed up: "It was a difficult competition, for both the athletes and the jury because of the changing wind conditions. But with good jumps you could still jump far and Kamil showed his strength this weekend with the two victories. I'm really looking forward to Zakopane, I expect a lot of spectators there and it's a really cool hill. Domen Prevc said: "I feel great. I had two very good jumps and I'm really satisfied with my improvement compared to the last competitions. I didn't really expect anything from this competition. In the second round I was lucky with the conditions and even if I didn't make my best jump I could still go far. I really like the hill in Zakopane. I already checked the forecast and I think we will have great weather there." Like on Saturday, Stefan Kraft was again the best Austrian. After his third place yesterday he was fourth on Sunday with jumps of 126.5 m and 129.5 m. Maciej Kot (POL) came in fifth. After a disappointing 32nd place on Saturday, Norway's Johann Andre Forfang finished on a strong sixth place. Germany's Richard Freitag tied for sixth with Forfang. Karl Geiger (10th) and Andreas Wellinger (12th) showed solid performances today. Gregor Schlierenzauer also improved his performance compared to yesterday. After the first round Schlierenzauer was fourth and he came in eighth overall. An important step on his way back to the world class for the Tyrolean after he closely missed the final on Saturday. "It was nice today, a moving weekend, that was a lot of fun. I knew that I'm on the right track but today's result was a positive surprise", Schlierenzauer said after the competition. Estonia's Kaarel Nurmsalu could qualify for today's competition. A 45th place on his first weekend after the comeback in the World Cup can be considered a success for the Estonian. With this win Kamil Stoch could further extend his lead in the overall World Cup. Stoch leads with 833 points, ahead of Norway's Daniel Andre Tande (767 points) and Domen Prevc of Slovenia (751 points). The Top 3 in the Nations Cup are Poland (2397 points), Austria (2229 points) and Germany (2029 points). The Ski Jumping World Cup continues in Zakopane (POL) next weekend with two competitions on Saturday (team) and Sunday (individual). Full Results Here
