He is already qualified for Korea, following the recent result in Bosnia.

Are you sure? Does that mean a skier only needs one run under 140 points, or is it the collective average of the best 5?

This always confuses me!!

Your level of surprise surprises me. They broadcasted it in 2013 and 2015. :p

I don't remember that, I guess I was merely a little interested in the exotic nations instead of having my actual best friend compete like Wednesday :p

This is on the door of the changing room used by the Brazilian women, a list of nations who share that changing room....but apparently it's the exact same list as on the men's changing room, so I guess this doesn't mean Tonga, Trinidad & Tobago, Ecuador etc will have a woman competing :p

I know Chile is represented by a woman (Claudia Salcedo), from Venezuela and Ecuador I'm only expecting guys and about Colombia....no idea.

Can you ask her to have Totallympics logo somewhere? That might bring few more users to the forum. :lol:

 

Or at least make letter "T" with fingers if camera shows her start. :p

Couldn't you have said that earlier? Then I would have bought some stickers online with the Totallympics logo and gave it to her when I was at the IBU Cups so she could put them all over Lahti :d 

 

I'll ask her though, and definitely the 'T' thing although I'm fairly sure that will be easier at the finish when the focus is gone :p (unless she's so near-dead like in Almaty where she was waving frantically to the big screen in the stadium that was showing her instead of to the camera :d )

 

By the way, they got lost in the training today and skied 5km in the wrong way....I hope it's all going better Wednesday :lol:

I guess we'll have to wait for the start list. If she has some early number then she's surely gonna be on TV. Finish on the other hand could be dubious.

Hope for an early start number to see her start and for a late number to see her finish basically :p 

 

That's the good thing about mass start events, they show every finisher (at least at the Universiade they did). This start lis is one of the most anticipated things for me this season by the way. I have absolutely no idea what to expect, and like I told her yesterday, right now I'd say she has anything from 5% to 80% chance to qualify for the main race because it's just completely impossible to know who will be in that qualifying race :d
