we have 5 athletes on this championship (3+2). I don't  expect good result, but it will be better than in biathlon probably.

So to sum up for the women's 5k tomorrow:

 

The top-10 goes to the 10k IF they have less than 180 FIS points in tomorrow's race? So if for example the athlete in 8th position gets 185 points tomorrow, only the top-7 will go to the main race? 

 

don´t know buddy, hopefully no, but who know, it´s clearly written

Quote
under the condition that they have achieved less than 180 FIS points (including the penalty) for the ladies and 140 FIS points for the men.

 

but well, you know how the FIS qualifications are incredibly hard to understand, just look the alpine skiing world championships GS and Slalom qualifications, no one knew who is qualified untill the final race start list were released :d

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. 

 

 

Denmark doesn't have a woman competing.

Same goes for a good amount of other nations in that list, so they simply copied the nations and made one with 'Women' and one with 'Men' for on the changing room doors :d

There is also no Togo and Tonga.

 

Not surprised about Tonga though, apparently he is concentrating on sprint, what would be consistent with the video I've posted.

How are you certain there is no Togo? Don't forget that even though she competes for a rather small winter sports nation like Togo, she doesn't need to enter the qualification race :p

I am talking about the list of nations on changing room doors (those that are supposed to compete in qualifications) :evil:

But the Changing Room Doors List says nothing about the qualifications :d 

 

I'm pretty sure they just threw all small teams in there, not looking at whether or not they had to qualify :p
