Hopefully next season we will have Brazil back at the World Championships (which is a little bit the goal) :d

Yes, I saw this 5 minutes ago :) But I think it could be even more, for example we don't have either China and GB in this relay :(

Did you see China in the single mixed at the Youth Olympics? Now that was one of the best biathlon races I have ever seen :bowdown:

 

As for GB, I believe they have basically no money. At all...

I don't know why they bother with Krystyna Guzik in the mixed relay? It's obvious our guys will blow any chance of a Top 10 result we could have  :wall:

Unfortunately I didn't watched this, because these Games weren't broadcast by any television in Poland :( But I watched this later in you tube and this last shooting showed why biathlon is exciting and unpredictable sport, nothing isn't know until last biathlete will not on finish line :)

It not happened in two(?) previous WC's and last Olympics as well, so, I hope this will be continue also here (only if Nowakowska will not have 8 misses) :d

About GB - yes that is very true. We have no money for Biathlon and purely rely on military funding. They also have a stupid system where they send their best athletes to the IBU World Cup where they are 5 minutes of 70th place! Instead they should focus on the IBU Cup (like Brazil) and develop a squad up over time.

The Brazilians are in the IBU Cup because they haven't qualified for World Cups yet, but I have absolutely no doubt that, if one of them would qualify, they would immediately make their World Cup debut :p 

 

To do that an athlete needs a certain score in a race in the IBU Cup and this standard is a lot tougher than the qualifying standards for world champs and Olympics.

Team Norge always peaks for the big championships and since this is their home one, i expect them to be in monster form. Maybe last chance for Svendsen to show that he isn't finished and can still be with the best. Also maybe the last start for Ole Einar Bjorndalen, i don't know if he is reconsidered staying till 2018.
