It seems that Antholz will count for Olympic qualification, but I am not sure about it

 

crnkovic made today his best point (79), if antholz does not count not enough. 

 

Wait, so if Antholz does count then Crnković's current result would be enough?

I think if Antholz counts, that means he might have another chance :p

Well, then the current biathlon qualification system literally sucks. :p

 

Last time around everyone was given reallocations (for example Hungary in men's field and Moldova in women's). Crnković is so much more competitive than those!

Well yeah, but when the system was announced (like two years ago), I already said the absence of reallocations was very worrying and incredibly shitty. If unused quotas would be reallocated, Jill Colebourn of Australia might still have a chance (a bit of a long-shot, but still).

Bad result from Beatrix ...

Jacquelin will compete in Antholz as well as Simon Fourcade. If they achieve a top-20 they'll qualify for the Olympics as substitute, otherwise the remaining spot(s) will be filled according to the results of each athlete at the European champs. 

Kind of trials, I like it :p

Would she really have a chance though? I think I remember that there was an Australian biathlete that had a quota for Sochi, but Australia did not let her participate and she ended her career. Or did I get this all wrong and it was a girl from New Zealand?

I'm 99,99% sure that was Sarah Murphy of New Zealand. In fact, I had forgotten about that, but now that I see her name, I'm entirely sure :p

The Australians are very much focussed on getting their athletes at the Olympics, I can't imagine they have extra standards (I can ask her later out of curiousity, but I don't think so).

I remember reading that story and felt crushed :(

Yep, awful. If Norway has that kind of standards, alright, but New Zealand? Come on..

I hope this will be enough for Oberhofer to see a start in Antholz. Since Runggaldier is still missing, they'd definitely need to have at least one back up for the Olympics.

Beilmann is going to shake up the Olympics qualification with this result!

Yeah, it must have been New Zealand biathlete.

 

I don't think I've ever seen Australia declining a quota.
