But still 4th podium of the season. :champion:

 

Congrats to Dahlmeier really amazing performance, considering she is still far of her top form, thats really worrying for her opponents in the next phase of the season :d Also congrats to Italy and Vitozzi :thumbup:

Just noticed that but Nastya is leading the World Cup standing !!! :hyper: this is an absolute premiere for Slovakia in a winter sport ! The only time SVK was leading the world ranking was in 2002/03 in Ice Hockey

The women's tour this year is beyond my expectations entertaining :yes Of course, there'll hardly be a season better than the one where Neuner, Henkel, Makarainen, Ekholm, Berger were separated by a couple of points back in 2010/11 season.

The way Kryuko fought for that was beautiful to watch. You could see how much it mattered for her.

The womens race was a fitting end (on the womens side) to a horrible world cup (overall). We should all thank god that the french arent allowed to host a world cup every season, because they obviously dont know what they are doing.

My only wish for christmas is that Kuzmina finally gets caught and that justice is finally done, she already stole enough olympic medals, its disgusting that she doesnt know when its enough, almost as if she wants to be caught.

Nice week of biathlon for all fans :)

 

The atmosphere was good, tracks were good, there were some good races, nice to see Kuzmina in good shape meaning yet another contender (which is good for every neutral fan) and nice to see Braisaz take her first win :)

So, three world cups are completed and it's time for the Christmas break.

I think it's the right time for some minor stats to see how the Olympic season is shaping up compared to 2016-17 season.

 

Men's tour already a little bit more interesting, since in the first 8 races, 7 of them were won by Martin Fourcade and 1 went to Anton Babikov, whilst this year, we have 5 for Johannes, 2 for Martin and 1 for Tarjei.

During the 8 races, Norway (in 2016/17) went on the podium four times, two for Johannes and two for Svendsen, this season is ruled by the Boes only.

Unlike this season, where Shipulin managed to land on the podium once, in 2016-17 season Shipulin had four podiums by now, with Babikov's 2 and Tsetkov's 1, seeing that this season is not that great for the Russians at the moment.

Germany had two podiums: 1 for Peiffer and 1 for Schempp, compared to this years' two for Erik Lesser and three 4th places for Schempp (it's only a matter of time, hopefully).

Lastly, in 2017/18 we also have Quentin (2), Guigonnat and Fak (3) on the podium, whilst last year we had Chepelin, Quentin and Lindstrom.

 

The peculiar thing on the women's tour, which partly might be caused by Dahlmeier's absence during Ostersund, the Yellow bib has already went through 5 different owners, compared to Dahlmeier and Koukalova sharing it throughout the whole season last year.

There were 5 different winners during those 8 races - 3 went to Dahlmeier, 2 to Koukalova, whilst 2017/18 already has 6 different winners (Herrmann and Kuzmina - 2) and three of them are first time winners.

Biggest national improvement, in my opinion, goes to Belarus that already have 3 different athletes on the podium on 4 occasions, whilst they only had 1 from Yurkevich in the very first race and one by Domracheva at the end of the season.

Dorothea had three podiums for Italy, whilst this season it's only 1 by her and 1 by Vittozzi.

France had 4 different ladies on the podium before Oberhof and this season it's only Braisaz on three different occasions.

Slovakia and Ukraine have struck luck this year to get on the podium combined 7 times (4SVK and 3UKR), but when someone wins, there's also someone whose losing and that's Russia, United States and Czech Republic that have not gotten on the podium just yet in the women's field.

 

Anyways, to summarise, Norway HAVE ALREADY surpassed their gold medal quota from last season (6) as they already have 8 now. Germany and France seem to be on track for a good performance on the medal table. Disaster for the Czech Republic, that finished the 2016/17 season with 21 podiums, they haven't even claimed one just yet, they desperately need Koukalova back. Slovakia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Slovenia are already having a better season just after these three world cups. Ukraine has the same 0-1-3 medal score by now as they've had in 2016/17, so anything more is already an improvement. Countries that could still use some work, Russia definitely stands out, cause they're far behind schedule. The Makarainen country (ok, that's unfair, since Laukkanen is top tier now as well) is slightly behind schedule after the three world cups and Austria still has a lot of work to do, whilst Italy seems to be on track.

 

Props to anyone that read this.
