I added some nations in the list above :d 

 

Russia won't send any of their top athletes, just names I didn't even see before..

No Rastorgujevs for Latvia, but Baiba Bendika will be there, which is cool!

 

Serbia was on the list of 24 nations, but won't travel to Otepää due to financial trouble unfortunately. 

Why Im not surprised at all. Winer sport in Serbia is on amateur level, UNFORTUNATELY. and this is such a great sport :cry:

Start lists for tomorrow's sprint are published, some small thoughts about 'my' girls:

 

- Gabi starts with bib 19 in a junior field of 46 athletes. She already beat the Greek girl last season, and almost beat the Spanish girl. I think she can beat them and the Armenian girl.

 

- Bruna has bib 39 in a field of 51, in which the level will be way higher than she has ever seen. If she keeps one athlete behind her, it would be a performance to be proud of :)

Don't be silly, we don't want to remove the whole sport. We just want to get rid of the sprint :p

Just as a medal event at the Olympics, because getting medals for both the sprint and pursuit is totally ridiculous :p

I understand that this is Summer Biathlon and that basically no favourites are participating here apart from the A team of Slovakia, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Estonia and some others, but this 4th placement from Karol Dombrovski looks slightly promissing for the upcoming season :)
