But I meant about yet previous coach Adam Kołodziejczyk, he destroyed good atmosphere in the team (good atmosphere, friendly etc. was thanks to Bilova), was fired and then totally disappear from sport :d Torgersen had difficult task and it isn't strange that athletes didn't reach good results, especially when half of them was injured or sick by half of training period in summer, but federation belived in him, he didn't reach expectations as I said earlier and was fired too.

Oh, I thought you were putting the blame on Tobias :d 

 

My apologies :p

big, big news for Italian Biathlon...

our National Federation hired a new shooting coach for our guys...and he's nothing less than Niccolò Campriani! :yikes::yikes::yikes:

I don't think I have to explain who he is, especially on this forum...:evil:

he's going to be the man in charge of all shooting activities (specific training, but also for psychological/motivational support) for all of our teams (senior M + F and juniors, too)...

if they don't improve their shooting skills with him, I don't really know what else can our federation do...:whistle:

Don't think Norway has any world class shooters (maybe I am wrong).

Josef Obererlacher is no longer head coach of the Belgian men :(

 

He has taken over as head coach in China, with Tobias Torgersen as his assistant coach.
