Biathlon IBU Cup 2019 - 2020

Recommended Posts

It´s official Osrblie will host the next 2 stages of the IBU Cup, this weekend the shortened individuals (Frday) and sprints (Sunday) and then also the next weekend to replace the stage originally scheduled in Poland, but because of lack of snow the IBU decided to award the stage to (repsectively keep it in) Osrblie also for the next week with mixed relays (wednesday) Sprints (Friday) and pursuits (Saturday)

 

Some interesting names are on the start lists like Erik Lesser, Roman Rees, Philipp Navrath,  Fredrik Gjesbakk, Karoline Knotten, Synoeve Solemdal, Ekaterina Glazyrina, Anastasia Porshneva, Anastasia Merkushina or Veronika Vítková etc.. , also the next stage will be the official retiring race of Matej Kazár

 

More about the upcomming races can be found here, in Slovakian, so google translate required :p 37 nations will participate including Mongolia https://www.biatlon-info.sk/spravodajstvo/ibu-cup/1198-osrblie-caka-dvojita-porcia-desiatich-pretekov-my-postavime-mnozstvo-nadeji

I was looking forward to Poland, but no snow is a problem.  That list you posted has a lot of WC experience.

Short Individual on right now.

 

Early in the race, Nilsson and Runghaldier leading the pack.  Still a long way to go.

I love seeing KYDASIOUK from Argentina.

 

Also Cadurisch wit #3 bib and in with 36:21.  My bet is that will be top 10 by the end of the day.

 

Great shooting from Markkanen.

Glazyrina with 45 sec lead after 4 shoots.  No penalties at all.  Looks like she takes the win.

Looks like more of the stronger men are in the last 2 groups for the short individual.

Lesser with a decent day, two misses and is currently in 5th place.  Good to see A. Cisar have a good race, 1 miss and 2:37 back.  Jimenez from Argentina started with 5 misses and only missed 4 more times during the race.  We also had someone from Spain today.

Congrats to Stroemsheim and Rees for shooting clean.  Actually 6 shot clean in all.

Maksim Fomin and Lukas Jakeliūnas with PBs in the IBU cup. With that, we have 6 male biathletes that are able to start in the World Cup now.
