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

The climbs are killing indeed, it'd be hard on sea level, let alone at 1700m...

 

It would have made for an epic battlefield though with these extreme wind conditions :d (today I saw athletes almost getting blown up the final climb...where they then had to turn and go downhill against that storm, with their hands in front of their faces :p )

Cool to see a Brazilian flag at the track all the time :d (at the end of the lap) 

 

I also saw a South African flag. :d

Great relay for us, 8th place with a loop no less. :clap: And we had chance for 7 till the last metres. Norway finally won something, unbeliavable isn't it. The relay here is their last bastion, they've won in 7 of the last 11 years.

Slovak mens relay 14th in last relay in Pokljuka started today with BIB 14 and finished 14th...they didn´t impressed but also didn´t disappointed...well, maybe 14 is actually the real place of our mens biathlon relay. In fact all guys surprisingly showed satisfying shooting but still their skiing form are very very weak...

 

the bad thing is that we dropped one place in the Nations Cup and are 15th now, in the direct battle with our main rivals we defeated Slovenia and Belarus but unfortunately lost to USA and Kazakhstan.

Starting order of our womens relay for tomorrow race:

  1. Jana Gereková
  2. Anastasiya Kuzmina
  3. Terézia Poliaková
  4. Paulína Fialková

all fingers crossed, we strongly need a good result, our situation in the Nation Cup standing is very very bad

12th place. what a pitty, we were so close to top 10, in fact during almost the whole race we were in, but one unlucky moment with the rifle of Paulína Fialková during our last prone where she lost 25 seconds between her 5th and 6th shoot, cost us probably the dreamed top 10.

In other hand it´s really quite a while we didn´t see such decent race from our team. thank this we moved again back one place in the 17th rank of the Nations Cup infront of the Japanese, but still it´s far from the calm and tranquille places we want to find ourselves during the olympic qualification.

 

also special mention to Nastya Kuzmina, once again she was just perfect. :bowdown:
