Provisional World Cup calendar:

And the provisional IBU Cup calendar:

I can already see another nice biathlon trip in my crystal globe :evil:

 

Option 1: A double with the new biathlon complex of Lenzerheide and the beautiful town and scenery of Obertilliach (or only Obertilliach if travelling between the two is a bit hard).

Option 2: A longer, triple trip starting in Arber and going on to the Süd-Tiroler double of Ridnaun and Martell :cheer:

 

I guess it all depends a little on the plans of a certain Brazilian biathlete :p

Exactly, it's quite weird from IBU that they give Russia a World Cup and two IBU Cups and they even didn't take away the Summer World Championships yet.. 

 

And Khanty as IBU Cup is just sad, that should be a World Cup venue :(

Valj Semerenko revealed the true reason why she flopped one season & basically skipped another one & it explained those pictures in the woods from the hospital  while everyone was on trainings, thought it was an ordinary recovery. The head of federation was saying that she's got tired and she needs to find motivation.

The real reason is that she had cancer :cry: She said that yesterday while departing to the trainings in Estonia. She doesn't want to talk about it though.

Well, 'she had cancer' sounds relatively good, as in, the word 'had' sounds like a good thing? Meaning that she's all back, the cancer is gone and she's ready to fight again?

In other news: Weronika Nowakowska-Ziemniak will retire after next season, Marie Dorin-Habert will likely do the same although she isn't completely sure yet.

Yep she said it's gone (yay! :d ) & she hopes it won't come back, she's still recovering after that but it's nothing serious now. 

I guessed about that 1 year ago when Valj was in the middle of her surgery (or right before) & threatened our 1st Olympic biathlete/medalist for implying that Valj was pregnant like Vita. She clearly was in a bad mental state. But it's all good now & she's training... Vita's baby travels with the team so it's 1 huge family )))))))

It seems that Uroš Velepec buried the hutchet with Jakov Fak.
