  1. M Davidova has announced that she plans to stop after the Beijing Olympics.https://newsbeezer.com/czechrepubliceng/david-does-not-want-to-get-caught-in-a-biathlon-bubble-what-does-koukal-say-about-leaving/
  2. I am not surprised as well to see her retire. She has struggled with her health, and motivation. The tour will miss her without a doubt. When she was on it was amazing to watch! Thank you Laura. Good luck with your career in the German Border Patrol!
  3. Interesting quote from IBU President - "We are the International Biathlon Union, so we have to look at how we can become a worldwide sport," he said. "We are currently very Europe-focused. The Olympics are in China and we need to look at how we can take advantage of this. We are already discussing with the Chinese biathlon federation how to have long-term development in China. We need to look at development across Asia and North America. We need to take this a step further and develop a strategy on this." I would love to see a dedicated IBU CUP series in Asia and North America. Not to replace the IBU CUP, but on the next level down. I know in NA there is already a series, like in Russia and Norway. Elevate the NORAM series into a formal IBU series. Give it more visibility. Start something in Asia with a race in the following venues: Korea - Pyongchang Japan - Nagano China - Zhangjiakou Kazahkistan - NZ and Australia could host as well, just in the opposite season. Give it visibility on the IBU website. Visibility is the key. I would love if the IBU Calendar would show much more than simply the World Cup, IBU Cup, and Youth/Junior and the Euro Championship. I would love to at least see a small write up/results about the 3rd tier of the sport. But I have always been a sucker for the little guy.
  4. Ole is back in the news after an interview with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.
  5. Ukrainian biathlete Maria Kruchova has retired from the team. She married Alexander Loginov
  6. That is too bad. To they really have a better shot with cross country over biathlon?
  7. Interesting news here: Anton Shipulin has announced that he was offered illegal stimulants. According to him, he turned it down. Ekaterina Ivanovna Glazyrina supposedly owes the IBU money from events that she won money in, but was DQ for them. She has not returned the money yet.
  8. Henrik L'Abee-Lund has announced his retirement at the age of 33.
  9. OK, so now this source is talking about Anders Byström as the new Sweden manager. He previously was skidskyttelandslagets, I have no idea what that is, but it sounds cool.
  10. Martin Foucade is hosting a Nordic Festival in Annecy - seems to be gathering some big names. Scheduled to compete are - Johannes Thingnes Bø, Benedikt Doll, Quentin Fillon-Maillet, Dorothea Wierer and Finland's Kaisa Mäkäräinen. Lucas Yokhannes is the new coach of Sweden IBU Calendar is out including start times for races.
  11. Pretty nice and funny description of what Biathlon is.
  12. Yulia Dzhima has announced that she had isues with Mono through the season. That might explain her results in the latter part of the season.
  13. US Biathlon already announced their levels for the 2019-2020 seasons Women: Clare Egan Susan Dunklee Joanne Reid Emily Dressigacker Men: Sean Doherty Leif Nordgren Jake Brown B Team - IBU Cup Travis Cooper Max Durtschi Alex Howe Paul Schoomer Hallie Grossman Deedra Irwin Chloe Levins No real surprises. I do like seeing Levins on the IBU circuit.
  14. That is why I love this website. All sorts of info! Do many nations outside of South America show up, I guess do some nations use it to prep for the winter?
  15. I thought this might be a good idea to contain all of the discussions between the seasons here. Russia is looking at their cross-country ski team to see if anyone wants to try biathlon. The article I read was specific about the German women's team as an example. An idea. What about a South American Championship in July? It would give teams a chance to get on snow and check their progress. Have it about three weeks prior to the roller ski championship.
