: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.

Not so much, but it happen sometimes in IBU cup. The thing is that each Biathlon weekend must have 3 mens and 3 womens races, the redistribution of the different events take place prior to the start of the season, in IBU cup there more sprints than other events so sometimes it happen that 1-2 stages have 2 sprints.

I heard the suggestion that maybe they have two sprints in Martell because the course is too hard for an individual :p

wouldn´t be surprising, as the highly placed venue Val Martell is definitely one of the hardest biathlon venue. :)
