No, its called wind lottery, you know, not sport.

 

IBU should introduce indoor biathlon for German girls, maybe they'd be able to medal in that case :lol:

Right, so which women do we all think we won't see anymore in races (apart from the other World Cups)? Anyone apart from Dorin Habert who has already confirmed retirement? I'm expecting Dahlmeier, apparently Kaisa says she'll continue as long as she enjoys it? How about the likes of Domracheva and Kuzmina?

Yeah, thats also true. Hinz would have been a better decision, still conditions were completely unfair. How many athletes did get through with a clean sheet? Wierer moved from first, to 1 minute back to first again within a couple of minutes, that alone should be proof enough. This race takes place once every four years, obviously officials never did sport at a level like this, otherwise they could have never made such disgusting decisions.

not like in first 2 races conditions were really good :p

 

you need to adapt at any conditions if you want to be the best

Moderatly interesting fact: With Oeberg overtaking Bescond in the last lape, Sweden also overtook France in the medals table.

Which is exactly why you don't want to have outsiders winning anything. They don't how to do it properly.

I'm angry. This was by far Germany's most disappointing result during these Games, and I'm totally blaming Gerald Hönig.

What does "not like in first 2 races conditions were really good" mean?

The best are able to adapt to all conditions, but thats not the point. If the wind is so strong that basically noone finishes with a clean sheet then something is wrong. Wierer going from 1st to 10th to 1st was almost comical.

Of course its not surprising that Preuß again (almost) messed up, its not her fault, still the wind played a much more important role. I agree about this being completey shit though, from gold medal favorite in the last two relays to not a single medal. Add the horrible results in skeleton and luge and you get disastrous games for Germany, without even mentioning the result of womens giant slalom.
