Perfect proof of why IBU's points system (where points can only be earned in serious international competitions with rarely less than 30-40 athletes) is a million times better than that of FIS :p

Damir Martin (Rio silver medalist in rowing single sculls) apparently wants to qualify for Beijing in cross-country skiing. Pita disease is spreading. :rolleyes:

 

Besides, how complimentary it must be for the sport of cross-country when basically everyone has seemingly started to think it's the easiest sport to qualify. :lol:

It's like the 100m or something in athletics, the basics of simply doing it are really easy to learn :p

By the way, just namedropping here, but Helene-Marie Fossesholm is going to be freakishly good. Only 16 years at the moment and basically dominating everything in Norway that's younger than 20. Oh, she only started real competitions in January.
