Cross-Country Skiing 2017 - 2018 Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

Oh and young Rhaick is impressing more and more every time he competes :bowdown:

 

It's already several years ago since the Brazilian coach, Leandro Ribela, told me that Rhaick would be competing on a level never before seen for a Brazilian (or maybe even a South American) and so far he's still well on his way to make that a reality.

Small detail: Thomaz Moraes is a young Paralympic athlete, he only skis with one pole if I'm not mistaken, and he keeps getting closer and closer to the regular skiers in Brazil. This dude is impressive (and won a medal at the recent Junior World Para-Athletics Championships in Switzerland).

Didn't she already do that with 220, 213 and 253 points last season?

Apparently not. You need the average of best 5 placings to be under 300.

Apparently today was a bad case of having a shit day in terms of technique, which just did not work, at all. Too bad, but Sunday in the sprint the technique was almost better than ever, so it's nothing too worrying, just a bad day like every athlete sometimes has a bad day.

275 FIS points for Samir Azzimani of Morocco today, bringing the average of his best five results (starting with last season) to 298 :)

That's great. Not many skiers make it to the Olympics in both alpine and cross-country skiing. :cheer:

 

And it will be the first Morocco's participation in XC skiing since 1992.
