    Kyrgyzstan is in And as for South America: it's mostly also a matter of snow (and venues) being available, which is the case for Chile and Argentina. Brazil has a few oldies (far in their 30's or older) and almost every single young athlete is thanks to Leandro Ribela's 'Ski na Rua' project, which has grown from a handful of kids from São Paulo's favelas to a huge project. Anyway, for a continent like South America I honestly think having three nations represented is really not bad or disappointing.

    New representation in terms of athletes has been happening for a few years and continues to happen, new representation in terms of even more countries is harder. I can't really remember hearing about other nations than BRA, ARG and CHI in the IBU Development camps in places like Termas de Chillan and Bariloche, maybe one Ecuadorian but I'm not sure.

    Biathlon 2018 - 2019 Discussion Thread

    You haven't noticed that IBU Cups in the past 2 years are filled with Brazilians? Three women and two or three men competing in them, with a couple of guys in the Junior Cup as well (and there's a bunch of teenage guys and girls starting to get more and more active on the snow - XC skiing - who might very well be given a chance in IBU competition in the next few years). There's a few young Argentinian girls too and behind Claudia Salcedo and Juan Agurto I believe even Chile has some young athletes (who are still rather far away from Brazil's level, but alright).

    They are 15 and 16 years old, so that's good. Also, they are living (and I think raised in) Norway and Austria respectively, which means they can train with a lot stronger people than they otherwise could

    Darts PDC William Hill World Championship 2019

    What a match, Cross beats De Zwaan 3-1, but De Zwaan had a huge 106,09 average. That's the 2nd highest losing average in WCH history, after Van Barneveld's 109,34 when he lost that epic semi against Van Gerwen in 2017.

    [OFF TOPIC] General Chat

    I thought it might be good to have a general chat thread, just for all kinds of stuff and for some general talk We didn't have it on the old forum, often resulting in these kind of things ending up in all kinds of other threads

    Plus some Dumbo f*cked his team by completely unnecessarily hitting a Dutch player on his arm, resulting in him being sent off with a yellow card and his team having a player less

    Biathlon IBU Cup 2018 - 2019

    That's the World Cup though, so it'd be cool if World Cup stuff stays in the World Cup thread (so I can avoid that until I can watch the race later today)

    Biathlon IBU Cup 2018 - 2019

    After avoiding the penalty lap in the prone shooting (0+3), Bruna hit a grand total of 1 target with 8 shots in the standing shooting (4+6) Ok, her rifle is half-broken due to someone else's fault, but I'm fairly sure she had hoped for a bit more.
  23. No Sjinkie Knegt to defend his European title at home in Dordrecht next month, he has a rather serious leg injury after an accident at home where he got trapped between a door and his fork lift
