What a bad results for Germans :lol: They was just 7th in the relay, one place higher than Polish relay :lol:

 

I didn't expected good results for our athletes, as its first time since 3 years when we compete in World Cup outside Europe and for all of them it was first ever on this track, only Maciej Kurowski started here already, but it was.... 7 years ago :wacko:

The germans are strong, but once again is proven that training on the tracks makes a big difference in luge. Having the privilege to train on the 5 or so german tracks, they easily dominate the races in droves, but for the few times every year they go to North America or elsewhere in Europe, their dominance disappears. Like there wasn't a single german in the top 5 in the mens race.

Wonderful snow in Konigssee. :)

 

As for Obratov, 22nd place in nations cup yesterday. 17th place on the last split before finish however, what would have been a decent result...

To be fair, Slovak female racer hit the wall like five times in a domino effect. If they had another go, they would be 3-4 seconds faster for sure.

yes, She is still young, it´s her 1st season in the world cup, she had some promising results in the juniors category so I assume it would need some time to adapt in the senior level for her. at least we have still some sources in the youth category like Zmij/Veverčák in the doubles, they  even finished many times on the podiums. but our problem is we have almost nobody in decent level in seniors category, also Jozef Ninis will not compete for eternity among mens, he is already the oldest athlete in the circuit and I don´t see anyone who can replace him after PyeongChang

World Championships started today with some surprising results in sprints. Gold medals for :USA Hamlin, :GER Wendl/Arlt, :AUT Kindl.

 

Only bronze for Germany in women's and no medal for Germany in men's sprint (not even top 5). :yikes: This sport is actually becoming unpredictable. 6 nations won medals today.
