Could Italy borrow us those two spots in the World Cup? Oh wait, we don't have more than two women that are eligible to start in the World Cup :cheer:

 

I do wonder if we will see Michela Carrara in one of those unused spots by the end of the season.  She was decent in the IBU Cup last season.

Karin Oberhofer was doing fine and didn't get a chance before her retirement.

 

Alexia Runggaldier had issues with health as far as I know, was trying to make a comeback, but not many chances taken on her either.

 

Italy doesn't like to send full squads.

I like the colors.  A first glance, they looked leather.  My thought was, that is one way to stand out.

I personally thought it was a cool idea to have the arms in yellow and red, leaving green in the middle as a fun way to represent the flag.

Big fan of the new uniforms. Biathlon uniforms are generally pretty good anyways, but there are great. I love to see countries take risk with their uniform designs. Athletes with awesome kits can win me over pretty quick. Nothing beats the Mexican sugar scull skiing kit from Pyeongchang though, or Kumar’s luge kit from Pyeongchang.

Too bad Brazil doesn't understand that and goes with boring white again and again. There's hardly any more exotic nation in biathlon competition and they manage to get the most boring, easy to miss suit there is.

Team Poland for Ostersund (obvious spelling error in Michael Greis' name :p ).

Lukasz Szczurek throwing his name in the fight for athlete with the shittiest name for people writing about biathlon, he's joining Jakub Strcvctrckctecky, the young and annoyingly quite talented Czech.

I double up the shitty level, Szczurek means "Little Rat" in Polish :p

 

Obviously his name is basically unpronounceable for any non-Slavic throat :lol:
