Perhaps Dale becomes very strong during the off-season and Quentin for France, perhaps Jacquelin if he gets a bit more consistent.

 

Germany is slightly washed up. Peiffer is not going to do anything at his age, Doll and Kuehn are a coinflip, so not going to be overall contenders and it doesn't seem like Schempp is ever going back to his best.

 

Tarjei won't be able to challenge his brother, he's like Simon was to Martin, just a bit more consistent, but never better than his bro.

 

Not expecting any miracles from Russia either and Austria is full of old men.

 

Leitner and Seppala look like the most talented youngsters that are not from the big 4 countries, but they still need 2 years of experience at least to really climb up the ranks. 

 

Perhaps Samuelsson can pick himself back up and Cisar should be debuting next year with the grown-ups, so we'll see what he can do.

The amount of talent Norway has coming up in their early 20's is not normal and Dale is already at the head of that. Endre Strømsheim, Aleksander Fjeld Andersen, Sivert Guttorm Bakken, Sindre Pettersen, Sturla Holm Lægreid, it never ends :lol:

:BUL Krasimir Anev (biathlon) shows up in the retired section. 

 

Perhaps @Federer91 can confirm this?

Anev threatened to retire so many times in the last 8 years, that i have lost the count.

 

Because of the post in his facebook "The End" :p 

 

In an interview, when returning yesterday, he said it was only for ending the biathlon season. And that now, people's thoughts should be for other things and not for sports. 

 

I would take him off this thread for now. ;)

To put this eloquently, biathletes from smaller nations retire 5 times or more, whilst biathletes from bigger nations retire only once :p

 

As a Lithuanian, I can't explain how relatable the feeling of losing count of how many times your athlete retires is.

Magdalena Gwizdon must have missed that memo. She will outlast them all :p
