Biathlon IBU World Cup 2017 - 2018

So, finally some few free time to return to todays pleasant shock. 4th place of our mixed relay is not the best ever result since a team Gereková/Kuzmina/Kazár/Matiaško finished 3rd in Kontiolahti WC mixed relay 2012. But the gap +7.7 behind the wining Norway is historically the smallest margin of any Slovak relay in all history.  :clap: we never finished under 10 seconds of the winning relay.

 

Paulína Fialková once again impressive improvement of her skiing, having absolute fastest time of her leg 6 seconds faster than Tandervold and Laukkanen. She passed in the last lap 9 biathletes, in his leg she overpassed her opponents 21 times to finish 4th 3 and half second behind the leader. from 19th place after first shooting. Pitty she looks still struggling with her shooting like in the past..

Anastasiya Kuzmina had finally a complete preparation during summer and is ready to compete the whole season with the main goal in the PyeongChang sprint when she will try to retain the 2 times consecutive title. Her shooting looks much better than in the last years, she apparently worked a lot with this issue this summer. worrying is a bit her skiing time, today only 7th in her leg 41 second behind the fastest Makarainen, but must say that in her leg there were the fastest girls running with Kaisa, Wierer, Eckhoff, Domracheva so..let see in the next races, we hope she will slowly improve her shape especially around February...

What to say about mens they were just fantastic today, presenting probably their lifes performance today, trying to keep the incredible position they inherited from the girls and they did it bravely. I´m really satisfied. Well done folks !

shame we lost the podium for 1.2 second, but never mind. This was one great and absolutely magic evening for me and such memorable biathlon performance.

 

Bravo and well done, Matej, Tomáš, Nastya and Paja :cheer:

He was so happy that he couldn't focus on speaking good in English, I think :d (Still better than Russians which speak in Russian instead English in most of interviews and press conferences)

This remember me of our football prospect Stanislav Lobotka and his legendary quote "This my sen" :lol:  sen is in Slovak language and it mean dream :d

 

 

since then it started to be a commonly used quote in SVK about celebrating something like here -- This is my Sen ! :p

On the other hand, Tuuli Tomingas qualified for the World Cup yesterday, that might be a bit hopeful considering she was a really good junior a few years ago.

We have had quite a many "used to be a good junior" winter athletes, sadly they just can't break through once they reach pro tour. Hopefully Tuuli or some other younger biathlete makes a slow but steady progress and we have someone to cheer for rather than seeing them at the bottom of the results list.

Well, your men look pretty decently. You can't have it all :d

Well done, I am happy for our colleagues from Slovakia. And also surprised over quite good performance of our team.

 

We competed with very weak team, without Gregorin (doping abuse), Mali (retired) and Fak (illness), only with Bauer.

Yes, on a good day they could get some decent results as they have showed from time to time but or best and most reliable are already 34 and 39 year old. But we have a great hope for the future, gotta wait about 18 years til my now 3 year old nephew who loves biathlon and says he wants to become biathlete is old enough :d

Karolin Horchler brought in to replace Laura Dahlmeier :(

Also, pretty sad that Gossner and Oberhofer are still not running, even if their reasons are very 'just', I still miss them on the tour.
