And men's bobsleigh. 

 

Well, biathlon makes perfect sense to have at the best possible time for Europe. So does luge. Actually only women's bobsleigh could have been earlier on the day.

Because they were preparing at their home track (exactly, the Olympic one). That plus the fact they won the World Cup two years ago (not a World Cup, the World Cup, the standings) makes them a serious threat.

it was forced by German TV (and for Biathlon also many other)...

Sliding sports give Germany most of their medals...and Biathlon (other than the sports results, also very good for GER) has tv ratings second only to football (soccer, for the American-speaking guys)...

so, it's quite obvious that the European Tv networks wanted those disciplines in the most favourable time as possible (noon CET is a perfect lunch-break time in most Countries)...

I beg your pardon ... ? "Most of their medals"? We would probably have to win less than 20 medals for that being the case, i hope you're wrong.

Tomorrow just might be the worst day with the schedule.

 

Cross-country, luge, speed skating, short track along with curling final all around the same time. I also foresee alpine combination being post-poned a bit to join the fun. There's also pretty much nothing on from around 8 to 11 cet time.

you're right...I had to write sliding sports + biathlon = the most medals for GER...;)

in any case, the point was about those disciplines being scheduled around noon CET mainly because of the German Tv (and for Biathlon also NOR, FRA and many others) desires...:evil:

I agree...tomorrow's gonna be a nightmare...

and it's gonna be a problem also to watch all those events one at a time, avoiding the spoilers...
