The first standing shot missed, but the rest were hits, well done! Now let's start counting :d 

It will be tough. Very tough. 

But it was a good performance today. :)

Oh come on, of all people of course :NED Carine Leijn shoots clean resulting in her probably finishing around 20-25 seconds ahead of Gabi :p

Gabi is kicking a whole lot of ass, including some names I didn't have on my list, but unfortunately it won't be enough as she's 62nd now. Still, very nicely done!

Young Ukaleq Slettemark has been impressive by the way! 5 misses, which is a shame, but she's keeping almost 30 girls behind her when looking at skiing speed only :yikes:

Regardless of the position she did great today. And even if she shot clear she wouldn't have made the pursuit, so nothing to really regret about that one shot.

Unfortunately Carine Leijn isn't in the pursuit even shooting clear :(

Thing to remember with her- she's only 15!! She could be on the junior cup circuit for about 5 years.

Dear Lord, if Anna Weidel really was skiing at near-competition speed when Bruna followed and then passed her on the tracks yesterday, that's some promising stuff for January :hyper:

Exactly! This is one of the most surpising performances I have seen in quite a while...I wonder where she finished when taking out the Juniors and only looking at the Youths..

Poor Sofie Hopkins. 105 of 106 girls have finished and she just came out of the shooting range and still has a full lap to go.

In terms of wildcards for the World Champs I will make a prediction: Maria Tsakiri (Greece), Snejana Tiseeva (Moldova), and maybe Bruna if she really has improved that much. But I can't see anyone else getting close to 180. Maybe I'm missing someone?

For the men it should be easier to fill, though.

What's the deal with the wildcards (women) again? Everyone from a top-30 nation is in (with a maximum per NOC of course) and wildcards go to non-top-30 nations?
