Koukalova has been spotted here in Obertilliach and she looks a lot healthier :p 

Perhaps that's what the Czechs need to get back on track? It's been pretty miserable for everyone that's not Vitkova. It's strange how with one person gone, the results fall apart for everyone around her.

Igor Malinovskiy (the owner of 3 gold medals on the last JWCH) probably ended his biathlon career. He wrote "this can be the last race in my career" in a  social network. It seems he chose aeronautical university.

Apparently not, since he's competing in the Junior Cup at the moment :p

This was impressive to see by the way, even in the penalty loop in Obertilliach she was skiing like a woman on a mission, full-power and filled with 'competitive aggressiveness' :)

According to German TV, the Czechs will have a press conference on 15 January to announce their Olympic team and talk about Koukalova's immediate future. I doubt we're gonna see her in Pyeongchang..

@phelps @Gianlu33 Any idea where I can find information about the Coppa Italia? There's a competition today in Brusson where the Brazilians are competing and I'd love to know where to find some start lists or results.

A lot of competitions in the region can be found here 

http://www.asiva.it/asiva_calendario.aspx?disc=Biathlon.

Search for CPI (Coppa Italia). You'll get the results by clicking on the code on the left. For today they should be XB013  and XB014 for men and women.

This is really interesting. When I was at the IBU Cups I heard a lot of talk about how the Mongolians have really improved a lot compared to last season, nice to see some behind the scenes in this video now and hear about the history of biathlon there :)
