Biathlon 2019 - 2020 Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

With the southern hemisphere season and the summer biathlon season coming up, I'd say it's time to start using this thread instead of the (excellent) off-season thread? :p

Egyptian flag at Mt Hotham for the Victorian Biathlon Championships :d :yikes: @thepharoah

 

 

 

And the for now only video, where we see Jill Colebourn (unless I am incredibly mistaken) getting ready to shoot.

Nope, sorry (I'd keep an eye on AUS Biathlon's Facebook page). I can ask around for more info on the Egyptian, if I can't find it now I'll try when I see the Australian team in the winter season :p

I also see the French flag and Italian?  I wonder if someone from French Polynesia is skiing.  I love to see Egypt there.

A few interesting tidbits out of Russia.

 

Loginov has not signed a contract with the Russia Federation yet.  It appears that he wants more than they will pay him.  Now I can not see him missing the season, and it will get done, but it will be interesting to see how this ends up.

 

One of the first Rollerski races has been held in Barnaul, Russia.  A write-up is here.

I found a list of semi-IBU sanctioned rollerski events:

 

31 July-3 Aug - Sandnes, Norway - Blink Skifestivalen  The Rollerski Biathlon races are on 2 and 3 Aug.

11 Aug - Wiesbaden, Germany 

31 Aug - 1 Sept - Annecy, France - Martin Fourcade Nordic Festival

 

New Zealand Biathlon team getting some work in, while the snow is coming down in their home country.  Pictures like this make me jealous.  It will be about high 90s F/ High 30s C for me today!  Also good to see the NZ team working towards the Oceanic Championships.  

 

I have not been able to find any results from the Victorian Biathlon Championships.  Just that their program was a Short Individual as well as a Sprint.
