He didn't start in the Pursuit for some reason. Shame, wasted opportunity.

 

On his Facebook site he said he will be racing a FIS cross-country race today. Probably didn't expect to make pursuit. :d

Oh. Hahaha.

I'd have gone for it. But now he knows he's capable of making pursuits!

Of course would have been nice to see him in the race, but the pursuit does not bring him anything iro olympic games, as no ibu points are awarded. I think he tries to qualify for cross country as well (with good chance) in case biathlon does not work.

If i understand the system well, then for 2018 OG qualification via ibu points the results which will count will be the one of the last trimester this season and the first two next season as they take the average of the best 3 results of the last 3 trimesters?

That actually means the great result of Crnkovic in Oberhof will not count :cry:

 

I don't really care about Olympic qualification at the moment. Most of all, it's refreshing to have competitive biathlete.

 

And the fact that he scored points despite two misses definitely says that he can repeat it. Moreover, he would already have points from Pokljuka with cleaner shooting. In any case, it's much better than having a slow athlete that always shoots clean (and that is very often the case with smaller nations).

Yeah, let's hope he doesn't leave to Slovenia :fingers:

I agree he has lots of potential, he's quite fast.

He has Croatian coaches I believe so that shouldn't happen.

:UKR Pryma committed historical breakthrough from 57th to 9th place.

Only one man was better than him 12 years ago - Julien Robert (60->10).

 

Thanks to :SVK Slovakian coach Juraj Sanitra we can have 3 or 4 men in tomorrow's mass start. Another historical event for our team.
