Which, no doubt, is Arber. There even at IBU Cup level you have to make sure you get a good spot before the start or else there's like two whole lines of people in front of you :d 

 

Two whole lines, it is amazing that a fight does not break out!

I was speaking about biathlon in general.  Yes I know that the "roar" is very muted even at the best IBU Cup event.:)

 

Well the Osrblie stage is always sold out

Sold out as in, there are tickets? :yikes: That's new for an IBU Cup :d 

 

Checked some other Osrblie videos from IBU as well and that looks pretty awesome indeed :cheer:

Happy to see Hammerschmidt back on the snow :) Let's hope for good results so she can find her way back into the A team.

 

Also, only four Lithuanians starting tomorrow, that's pretty sad. We are definitely capable to put 4 in the men's race at least, don't know why we didn't.

I was looking at the start list for the men's race tomorrow.  It turns out that Vinny Fountain, who starts 75th tomorrow, and races for the UK was born in Virginia.  I wonder about that story.

Don’t know about him specifically, there are lots of American-based Brits in various sports at the moment.  Usually it’s American-born people with one British parent who have been through or are still in the NCAA system and who are eligible for some kind of subsidy or help from the lottery-funded British system.

@heywoodu  Is the little Slettemark eligible for World Cup status? I mean her mother pretty much extended her career beyond limits to keep the nation quota alive? When does it expire?

I'm not sure about the nation quota, though I'm pretty sure her result at junior worlds makes her eligible for at least one trimester.
