Winter Universiade 2017

I noticed that too. :d For example at the latest Winter Universiade in 2015, USA's men's relay team in cross-country finished behind Mongolia!

Yep :d 

 

The American and Canadian women's cross-country teams for Almaty are just....weak as well. I mean, some of them don't even have any FIS results ever, or one of them only has three results during a week in 2015 in New Zealand..Others are many minutes behind in national FIS races and barely get under 250 FIS points. Same thing for the South Korean team by the way, some of them finished 5+ minutes behind the winner in a national 5-10km race. At least one of the Chinese women has had a somewhat decent finish in a national event, but again, most of them barely even compete and definitely not outside China (unless it's the one who did compete outside China in her career....at the previous Universiade). 

 

The names I got so far for the women's cross-country btw (I'm collecting them for obvious reasons, so why not share them :p ):

Nice. :d I remember :KGZ Abdykadyrova's incident from this video.

 

Don't think that Brazilians should worry about her. :p

Nope, when I saw her name my first thought was "Cool, if Bruna doesn't do anything weird, she definitely won't finish last" :d 

 

By the way:

If I didn't actually see that this was Abdykadyrova, I would absolutely swear this is Gabi's rifle! (not Koukalova, but Almeira Neres) Interesting to see this pattern on someone else's rifle :p

Maybe something like what Madagascar was planning, but probably has to forget now. 

 

Madagascar has an athlete at least.


Its bizarre that just a delegation is being sent to the Universiade from a country (Gambia) with no winter sport tradition

Well, it may help organize something, who knows. At least the few officials who are going there will get some hands-on experience with some of the winter sports and I wouldn't be surprised if the Universiade has some things like lectures and stuff about organizing sports in a nation. A start has to be made somewhere for these nations, and if you don't have athletes, this is better than nothing :)

I don't know how it works for every country, but it looks like Eurosport is going to show a lot of cross-country, biathlon and alpine skiing live :cheer:

Awesome :hyper:

 

Now it's hoping Bruna either has a very early or a very late start number to increase the chances of seeing her :evil:

Smerciakova might be beatable for :BRA if her injury is gone + she has a great day + Smerciakova has a not so good day, Segecova is as good as unbeatable for her :p

I suppose so, never heard about her to be fair, Segečová is more known name because her brother time by time start in our A team but with very poor results, I think Bruna can beat both of them :d

 

I don´t know what to expect from this universiade, for example I never heard any of the names from our ice hockey team, never !!! and I live in Slovakia :lol: all are from our university league, but I really don´t know how to valuate the level, so I hope for the best but expect the worst :lol:

maybe Michal Kubaliak in biathlon or Matej Falát/barbora Kantorová in alpine skiing are more known names, but really don´t see any medal comming this time
