Biathlon IBU World Cup 2017 - 2018

But skiing is only one part of biathlon, so as I wrote in my first post, I would organize some kind of trials among those 4 athletes for final two places with same conditions.

But why would they do that? The others have shown that they are better now than Bjoerndalen, they wouldn't need trials to see that.

For me only four are way better, others just have some flashbacks, they were not so consistent. I am aware that would like for sake of history see Bjoerndalen in Korea, therefore much more sense is to give him first leg in Ruhpolding relay and then give final word.

But then again, that would make it depend on one race, whereas the others have shown they are better this season. Well, personally I don't care so much, but if I was a Norwegian and also someone who desperately wanted to see my own country win as much as possible, I would hope they don't choose Bjoerndalen :p

Perhaps there's still enough time for Bjoerndalen to embrace Belgium? :wub:

Braisaz is sick so she won't participate today (and for the relay but it was already planned)

I'd say keep an eye out for Franziska Hildebrand, she does really good at Rupholding (even if the sprint discipline suits her more).
