Biathlon IBU World Championships 2020

Recommended Posts

I didn’t post it earlier, but I’m high key happy with Dunklee’s performance today. Clearly, I set the bar to low for the US team :p

If she could’ve just held her speed...what could have been.

Hey, after Bailey’s miracle, nothing is imposible in US biathlon. (Also beat an unexpectedly good Czech on that day too :p, though Moravec was a bit more prolific than today’s bronze medal winner)

Nobody mentioned it but :BUL Milena Todorova finished 27th with only one miss. She scored a total of 2 points in her World Cup career to date (39th in Ostersund individual this season).

Well, feels like it's going to be the miracle World Championships for Lithuania :) 

 

It was easily a career best with one less miss for Natalija and that would have been amazing, but getting into points is very cool too.

 

If Vytautas Strolia is going to sneak into top 10 tomorrow, just remember you heard it here first :lol:

World Champs & Olympics are always a big chance for the small nations because of the restricted numbers for the giants.  But it’s one thing to have a chance, another to take it. :yes

Yeah, our juniors in the IBU cup are not going to have a good time with so many strong athletes starting there, that didn't fit in the team here :d

I just was able to watch the women's sprint.  Very fun race to watch and so excited for Dunklee, but also Egan and Reid.  Lots of crazy issues with shooting. I am looking forward to the men's sprint.
