I just can't wait for all of the people holding their breath when Sanfilippo and Gontier will be shooting. I'd assume many still went for Italy, regardless the gamble.

One of the problems of the format of the prediction contest: you basically have to gamble whether or not people are in shape instead of, which would be more normal, being able to predict day-by-day taking the current form into consideration.

Yup, but I guess that would add additional problems for Wanderer when hosting.

 

Also, knowing the startlists and bib numbers helps too

But that's what makes the sport so popular! I bet everyone had more fun picking Johaug for golds in the Seefeld champs, right? :rolleyes:

@hckosice, do you know the order of your ladies in the relay? I've actually put them on gold in my prediction. :toast:

 

I'd like Poliakova to start first. Think it might limit the damage.

 

Brave move, honnesty with all respect not very smart...but certainly brave :p

 

Still not officially decided, the will unveil it tomorrow. But for now I. Fialková, P. Fiaková, Poliaková, Kuzmina

Has Poliakova ever worked for the :SVK relay? :mumble:

Right! I forgot how high :SVK finished back then. It's safe to say that was the one-hit wonder for Poliakova :dunno:

Teams are out for relays.

 

Slovakia did change something, moved Poliakova and Kuzmina a spot, and put Paulina Fialkova as an anchor.

 

Medal favourites below?

 

Hinz-Hildebrand-Herrmann-Dahlmeier

Vitozzi-Gontier-Wierer-Sanfilippo

Solemdal-Tandrevold-Eckhoff-Olsbu

 

Herrmann-Gontier-Eckhoff show on range!

Considering the form on this WC, I'd say your men's team is the favourite for gold. J. Boe is scary, but the rest of the Norway isn't at all.
