FIS decided that the women Will now race the same distances as the men!

Actually, men will now race the same distances as women.

 

WTF. 15km Interval was super fine - you had to manage your energy well or start fast and hope noone overtake you at last round. Had some dramatic plot twists and story.  10km will be just longer sprint. Boring! :facepalm:

 

 

 

Also there will be change of the World Cup Point table. Probably more athlets will get awarded with points. :yes

I don't understand. Thought the distances was decided but now I read it will be decided for world cup today. And appearently 88% of the WC women are against this.

I would assume and hope they are in favour of equal distances, but by letting them do the same as the men do, instead of basically the other way around? It can not at all feel great to have your international federation basically tell you "you women are not physically capable of distances men are capable of" straight in your face, and bring it as something great.

If we have learned anything from the UIPM, it is that rules can be changed even if 90%+ athletes are openly (!) against it. :p

Meanwhile the South American season is well underway, with Argentinian championships in Cerro Catedral at the moment. Sunday there was the classic distance race, but that can be discarded at least in the women's category: the main athlete wasn't there, and it was only juniors.

 

Yesterday Ceci Dominguez did participate in the freestyle distance race and she won the title there, which is nice to see after the whole drama around the Olympics, where she - despite being quite clearly the best Argentinian - was snubbed by the federation.

 

Main thing though, as far as I know it is the first time ever a women's race in South America goes under 100 points for the winner!

That is a fairly big deal when keeping an eye out for the Olympics, because hello A-criteria and so the right to compete in every single individual event in Cortina. I know someone who is not going to skip the South American snow races in the upcoming years, when recovered enough to compete :d
