Biathlon IBU World Championships 2017

Recommended Posts

Once again so close to the top 10 but again ...nothing. but well, what can we do, without Kuzmina this is our probably real positions peak..  just pitty we lost with Kazakhstan one of our main opponent in the Nations cup. Very pleasant performances especially from our girls, both presented very good efforts keeping our top 10 dream realistic for quite long while, especially Paulína with her 4th fastest skiing time. The good news is that we finally managed to avoid penalty loops in the mixed relay...so overall satisfying and good result, just pitty the lost with Kazakhstan

 

In the mens standing we moved up to 16th place ahead of Slovenia, womens remains 17th still on danger only few points in front of Japan. remember that top 17 countries can enter 4 biathletes per event next world cup season.

Good God, can this prick be any more obnoxious. Since when is this primadonna a messiah and everyone should be entitled to his periods. I never thought i could hate an athlete more than Nadal, but this douche is something else and then some. I'm praying someone knocks his head between his legs.. IBU should fine his sorry ass (if not more) for disrespecting the sport and his competitors.

Or maybe because the president of Russian biathlon federation wrote a letter to the IBU president where he crapped at all the biathletes he hates including Fourcade brothers? :woot:

 

Wasn't that after Fourcade's very disrespectful (but, I'll admit, rather funny) comment underneath that photo of Loginov?

My little opinion:

 

Fourcade: being an annoying jerk on the downside, but at least he's not staying quiet which is a positive (ha!) thing

Shipulin: understandably angry about Fourcade's bitchfight with Loginov, although not shaking someone's hand is more a sign of weakness than "making a point"

Loginov: I'd rather not see him on the podium, but he's served his ban and all the crying about him is starting to be even more annoying than Fourcade has ever been

Aren't you usually the first one that doesn't want to see convicted EPO dopers, in any sport. :p Loginov is like an exception really. :whistle:

That's why I don't like seeing him on the podium, but in the past weeks all of the "OMG they selected Loginov and Starykh!!!1omgnoooo!!" on all kinds of places on the internet has been getting out of hand and dominating everything about biathlon, it's getting annoying....really annoying :d 

 

And people blaming IBU for it, like they actually expect a federation to impose lifetime bans on first offences.

Fourcade apparently intentionally pushed Loginov during the exchange. I did not notice that during the race. :p

Loginov apparently unintentionally didn't turn aside.

Russians flied a protest and they watched it from different cameras & admitted there was nothing intentional from Fourcade.
