    Looks like that’s been cancelled - it’s now pointed to Saturday as Day 1 for broadcasting.  
     
    So just the Saturday pursuits & relays on Sunday.

    More videos up at the Russian Biathlon website this weekend, some Russian Cup races from Krasnoyarsk.  As Rob says, it helps if you can at least read cyrillic letters.

    Money is crystallised sweat.  Remove the link between money & work and whatever you once called money becomes mere paper, and something else becomes money.  Denying this is like denying ice is cold.  A whole century of history bears this out.  
     
    Anyone who says the contrary is either a fool or is bent on destruction.

    Yesterday a new Dutch TV program started: Marble Mania, I'm sure you can all guess what it's about  
     
    1.4 million viewers, which is very, very big for a new show at that time slot (20.30h). Not a fan of the whole commercial aspect after it was a fun little obscure thing online for years, but alright. The 'creator', John de Mol, wants to turn it into an international hit, just like he already did with Big Brother and The Voice.

    Sad news. One of the all-time greats, any sport, Hank Aaron has passed away.

    Yeah, but Americans don’t know that.  It just sounds better to say “We want Swedish-style socialism” than it does to say the truth which is “We want Chinese-style Socialism.”

    This is funny & revealing.  Whoever is controlling the Bidenbot speaks into his earpiece to tell him to “Salute the Marines” as they present arms to him.  Instead of saluting, he just says “Salute the Marines.”

    Roeiseland has a terrible second shoot - misses two & slow.
     
    Eckhoff also misses two, but faster shooting.
     
    Joanne Reid  gets some airtime!
     
    Tandrevold 0 0 0, heading for the hardest shot in biathlon....
     
    Roeiseland finishes with 0 2 1 1, probably has the best ski speed.
     
    Tandrevold does a Frode Andresen (2002 Salt Lake Olympics) 17/17, misses three.

    Good to see that the Russians have got Streltsov in their team today, the man who was destined from birth to be a biathlete - Streltsov in Russian means Shooter.
     
    Shoot of the day from Giacomel, there!

    It’s only a 75m loop in this race, isn’t it?
     
    France have time to pick up a flag from the spectators, if there were any spectators.  Or any flags.
