Team Lithuania has acquired the coach of Belarus B Team. Don't know yet if it's an upgrade or downgrade, but our women athletes were being beaten by his former athletes all season, so perhaps an upgrade? :mumble:

Can't help, but figure that a lot of the decision power was influenced by Bjoerndalen...

 

Darya was looking great, potential winner of the crystal globe next season. I can't say that she was my favourite biathlete, nor have I ever rooted for her, but too soon...

Meanwhile Ukrainian fans started "leaving" our biathlon since the women's team had been headed by the Russian with a doping history :facepalm:

 

Semerenko sisters openly went against Merkushyna and Varvynets (1 day before their race at the Olympics) saying that the federation is unprofessional and those girls didn't deserve their place in that race even despite Valja flopped the final training/preselection. The team is still a divided mess with unhealthy relationships.

 

Both Semerenkos like the new Russian. Merkushyna and Varvynets have their own coaches. Since Uros Velepec has been fired, Dzhyma trains with the :SLO Slovenian team because his methods suit her well. She hinted at sisters saying that there's no team spirit and she hasn't talked to anyone in the team for a long time, even at the Olympics o__0.

Pidhrushna says neutral stuff but knowing her position I'm 100% sure she can't stand the new coach and what's going on with the team right now. She didn't go training with that group ... supposedly because of a minor shoulder injury ;)

 

I cheer only for Dzhyma, Pidhrushna, Merkyshyna & our men's team because the women's team is a huge disastrous mess.

Varvynets refused from a surgery meaning that she will probably never improve to her best level.

 

Vitaliy Kilchitskiy is back. Thank gawd that Russian dopingophile is not their coach - Kilya would physically assaulted him (not joking, I'm dead serious). But he didn't compete for a long time so I don't expect gr8 results from him.
