I tried to do some calculation for the remaining places for men qualification:

Standing after first ibu cup 2017/18

 

1. Roesch Bel

2. Lapshin Kor

3. Guzik Pol

4. Koboniki Jpn

5. Tachizaki jpn

6. Szecurek Pol

7. Langer Bel

8. Crnkovic Cro

 

Claude (bel) will probably come in high in this ranking with his next race, therefore currently it looks like 2xbelgium, 1x Korea, 2x Japan and 1x Poland, but still everything is very close and one very good result could change everything.

 

 

There's a decent chance that Belgium will be declining quotas (or at least Langer's possible quota). Back in 2014 they qualified in alpine skiing, biathlon and cross-country skiing and yet they didn't send anyone in those sports.

But can non-qualified countries even get 2 quota's? I thought they'd only take 1 per country from the non-qualifiers?

Looks like they can.

So several nations could still qualify a mixed relay in fact.

Hm, that means China will probably get 2 women in, most definitely.

And it also means that smaller biathlon countries have pretty much no chance to qualify now.

I read somewhere that Belgium will send their athletes if they qualify. Langer probably will not qualify anyway as Roesch and Claude are better. Not sure but does it matter if they decline or not, as there is no reallocation of quota?

Well, Langer had a very decent run in the last IBU sprint, I know it seems logical to write him off, but he seems to have stepped up his game.

So, basically, no chances now for Victoria Padial to qualify.

 

 

I hate when individual events had 'team oriented' qualification rules, like biathlon or fencing in Summer olympics.

For this reason our national team decide to try to qualify in cross country skiing to the Winter Olympics.

Why not? She's one of the athletes from non-qualified nations who actually do have a chance.

If I'm not mistaken, this is the women's points list at the moment (after IBU Cup 1). I've taken into account all results of last season's last trimester, and will add all results of this season's first two trimesters as the competitions go on, only for the athletes from non-qualified nations.
