Biathlon 2017 - 2018 Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

The Junior WCH 2015 winner (sprint) :BLR Darya Blashko can switch her team & citizenship to :UKR Ukraine.

 

They are called Ukrainian biathletes by our main sportswear distributor.

 

The rumours about Maria Panfilova switching back to Ukraine appeared in June and now both bought Ukrainian sportswear.

Panfilova's results are tragic though. Blashko will be a nice addition to the next Olympic cycle when Semerenko sisters (and Pidhrushna?) retire.

 

EDIT: Both of them train with our "Team B" so it's confirmed.

Russian Ministry of Sports awarded Starykh & Loginov with the highest sports title in Russia of "Honoured Master of Sport" :facepalm:

 

We have the same title in our system btw, but it can be stripped off only in 1 case - doping abuse :lol:

 

 

Meanwhile the rumours say that Uros Velepec can come back to coaching Slovenian team after these OG end.

Thank god :yes as long as it doesn't merge with a bunch of similar tricolor suits. Thankfully there's a cross on the left shoulder.

I like orange suits, but only for the Netherlands :d (or maybe Ivory Coast, but I've got a feeling they might be a little far away from participating in international biathlon)

 

This new Slovak suit is a million times better :bowdown:

Nah, orange was cool because you immediately spotted them. Meanwhile, which other countries have red, white and blue flag? :mumble:

But I don't see how orange makes sense. For the non-existing Dutch team that'd make sense, just like for example that all-blue of Italy makes sense despite it not being in their flag (much better than the red of a while back). It shouldn't only be easily spottable, it should also make sense :d

The South American championships are being held in Portillo in Chile this week, at around 3000 meters altitude so that's nice. Judging by the photo, three nations made it to the podium, with Maria Dominguez of Argentina taking the gold, silver for Claudia Salcedo of Chile and bronze for Brazilian Mika Picin (who won the Brazilian championship, although as far as I know she was the only Brazilian competing, so, yeah..)

So, we've got all results of the South American championships apparently. I only found the top-3 + the Brazilian results, there are at least ten men missing in the results between 4th and 10th who must be Argentinians and Chileans then, I'll update when I find those :p 

 

Men's sprint
1. Axel Ciuffo (Argentina)
2. Damian Barcos (Argentina)
3. Yonathan Fernandez (Chile)

11. Fabrizio Bourguignon (Brazil) --> meaning he's now the Brazilian champion

12. Leandro Lutz (Brazil)

14. Lucas Martins (Brazil)

 

Men's mass start

1. Axel Ciuffo (Argentina)
2. Damian Barcos (Argentina)
3. Yonathan Fernandez (Chile)

7. Fabrizio Bourguignon (Brazil) 

11. Leandro Lutz (Brazil)

15. Lucas Martins (Brazil)

 

Women's sprint

1. Maria Cecilia Dominguez (Argentina)

2. Claudia Salcedo (Chile)

3. Mirlene Picin (Brazil)

 

Women's mass start

1. Maria Cecilia Dominguez (Argentina)

2. Claudia Salcedo (Chile)

3. Mirlene Picin (Brazil)

 

Four competitions, around 20 athletes in total I guess, and all I can find about the shooting is that Bourguignon missed 'only' 5 shots in the mass start and that only one person (no idea who) did better in that race :p
