So a wombat is more durable than a tasmanian devil? :p

 

Does like a koala travel 1,000 meters his entire life even? :mumble:

I should have some photos from around there from when my girlfriend was running around the course sending photos of the biathletes in action while I was watching the live stream (she competed in the cross-country instead of the biathlon there). Don't specifically remember bushes and trees, but I do remember it was this beautiful open snowy plains.

Yeah, it might be my favorite venue outside the major World Cup ones. I’m kind of sad they didn’t get the 2022 Winter Olympics (especially since Kazakh sport is doing well right now)

I still don't know if I'm sad about it or not, it depends entirely on the legendary Medeo speed skating rink. If they put a roof on it I'm happy they didn't get it (and this seems the likely option), if they leave it as it is, I'd be happy if they get it :p 

 

Medeo = epic

Yeah Medeo was a cool venue too. They’d have to put a roof on it because it snows to much. The Almaty ski jumping center is very nice as well.

There's no too much in speed skating :wub:

 

I know, not fair and everything, but this was epic. Just, epic.

 

Spoiler

 

 

But fine, we're digressing, this is about biathlon :p I'm kind of annoyed at there not being full results from Australia yet, come on.

No penalty lap for Jill there, excellent :d 

I loved how polite she was when she got up, no rush to cut off the others.

And now back to biathlon.

Don't expect anything else from her, she is in fact a very kind person. I ain't cheering for her for no reason :p
