Thanks! It's freakishly cold and there's a strong wind...prepare for a ton of misses in the live timing :p

So far out of the 'Wildcard' women who are around the limit for the WCH, we only really have Tsakiri, and I imagine the two "Moldovans" could make it. If someone else can get under 150 or 180 it could be today, it's at the point where virtually any woman out of the top 30 in the Nations Cup who gets under 180 will be at the World Champs.

Any update on Bruna's ski speed? As I recall it was very promising!

You never know. Wonder how it compares to Beitostolen.

Remember that time during a WC relay when it was freakishly windy and athletes more often than not went on penalty loops? 

That was when the Czechs got second :lol:

Its hard to tell for today. With 1700m its basically the highest venue which can make it hard and they arrived only like 30 hours ago from Brazil :p

Well it's still the same time on the IBU website so... Haha

If it does go ahead we'll probably see something like that.

Any idea why? 

 

Two falls for Bruna by the way unfortunately, including one where she had to take off her skis to climb back on the track.
