    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWW 
     
    History made for Lithuania, two athletes on the podium in the same event, I believe it only ever happened in Modern Pentathlon before with Krungolcas and Zadneprovski both winning medals at the Olympic Games.
     
    Probably won't ever happen again, since Gudžius is ever slowly becoming an old man and can't throw that far anymore, but Mykolas Alekna is only nineteen and he's going to hopefully have a decade long rivalry at least with Ceh, they're both the future of discus throwing.

    I think it was more about the skis themselves than the waxing, because QFM was slow but in the same team Guigonnat had the 3rd fastest ski time. Christiansen was impressive today too and they both have the same brand (Salomon). Today if you had Fischer skis you were screwed

    Meilutytė is just amazing, after everything that she's overcome, I was glad with only her coming back, but I never expected her to come back this strong.

    Only four athletes were sent to represent Lithuania to these championships:
     

     
    Rūta Meilutytė (50m Freestyle A, 50m Breaststroke A, 100m Breaststroke A, 100m Medley A, 50m Butterfly B)
    Kotryna Teterevkova (50m Breaststroke A, 100m Breaststroke A, 200m Breaststroke A)
    Danas Rapšys (200m Freestyle A, 400m Freestyle A, 200m Medley A)
    Andrius Šidlauskas (200m Breaststroke A, 50m Breaststroke B, 100m Breaststroke B)
     
    We've also had some other athletes with B marks, but probably weren't sent since Australia is far and expensive and they wouldn't have qualified to finals anyways.
     
    Smiltė Plytnykaitė - 100m Freestyle B
    Jokūbas Kėblys - 50m Freestyle B
    Tomas Navikonis - 100m Freestyle B
    Džiugas Miškinis - 800m Freestyle B
    Arijus Pavlidi - 50m, 100m, 200m Backstroke B
    Daniil Pancerevas - 100m Medley B
    Nojus Skirutis - 400m Medley B
     
    Deividas Margevičius and Simonas Bilis, both now retired, had B qualifying marks as well in a couple of disciplines.
     
    Aleksas Savickas, Smiltė Plytnykaitė, Deividas Kazilas, Daniil Pancerevas, Erikas Grigaitis, Kajus Stankevičius, Agnė Šeleikaitė and Tomas Navikonis had more B qualifying marks, but in disciplines that had an A Q mark already or an athlete with a better B Q mark.

    Werloc got a reaction from Biathlonfan in Early Qualification Predictions for your Nation at the Summer Olympic Games Paris 2024   
    Okay, I'll have a shot at this, barring injuries, retirements and disasters, perhaps I might get very accurate.
     
    In Tokyo we had a very unsuccessful Olympics with 42 athletes and only a single medal, I think it shouldn't be too difficult to better this performance, but let's see sport by sport.
     
    We had 0 in archery and artistic swimming and we'll continue to have 0 in both.
     
    In athletics we had 11 athletes: Truskauskas, Žiūkas, Mastianica, Gudžius, Matusevičius and Jasiūnaitė should make it. Šerkšnienė and Virbalytė probably gonna be retired. Palšytė, Zagainova and Glebauskas are question marks. I have high hopes for Morauskaitė, Galvydytė, Karinauskaitė, Baikštys, Baikštytė, two marathon runners, one additional race walker at least, Petrokaitė, Kilty, Mykolas Alekna, Martynas Alekna, Zarankaitė and Benkunskas.
     
    This would up our athletes in athletics to 20 and if things go well, the number could even rise to 24.
     
    Badminton - probably 0
     
    Basketball - one of the most unpredictable sports with so little spots to qualify, the results have not been looking so stellar, so I'll go with won't qualify again.
     
    Basketball 3x3 - both the men's and women's teams are showing brilliant results right now, I'd assume they should be able to qualify both.
     
    Beach Volleyball - we have some very capable teams and two female teams qualified to the European Championship, but qualification in this event is super tough, so I'd say 0 this time too.
     
    Boxing - we have strong men and women, but when it comes to qualifying, it's always a struggle, so I'll settle for a confident 1 (either man, or woman)
     
    Breaking - I think we have one girl that's been taking titles left and right, so 1
     
    Canoeing Slalom - Just no
     
    Canoeing Sprint - in Tokyo we suffered a major disaster with only 1 athlete qualifying. Nearly everybody had to change disciplines and it affected all of our sprinters. This time everyone will feel more secure during the qualification period, so it would be safe to guess three boats - one single, one double, one four. It's likely we could qualify more, doubt that our women have any chance.
     
    Cycling BMX/Cycling Mountain Bike - 0 in Tokyo, could hope for 1-2 athletes in Paris.
     
    Cycling Road - we had 2 athletes in Tokyo, I'm going to go with a bold guess we'll qualify 3 somehow.
     
    Cycling Track - 3 athletes in Tokyo, though without Krupeckaitė, no chance to qualify a team. The men are forming a sprint team, but too much work there to fix in so little time. Lendel, Marozaitė, Baleišytė could qualify in their individual events.
     
    Diving, Equestrian, Fencing, Field Hockey, Football, Golf, Rhythmic Gymnastics - SKIP
     
    Gymnastics Artistic - two men are possible
     
    Judo - we had 1 in Tokyo, 1 in Paris should be doable.
     
    Modern Pentathlon - 3 in Tokyo, 3 in Paris probably as well.
     
    Rowing - we had an amazing team of 9 in Tokyo, 9-10 could be possible for Paris as well, but everyone will need to step up in the next two years.
     
    Sailing - probably not better than 2 just like in Tokyo
     
    Shooting, Skateboarding, Sport-climbing, Surfing - NOPE
     
    Swimming - this one is the most interesting and tough to predict, because we have a huge amount of talent, but it's uncertain if there's enough time for them to grow into Olympic level. We had 6 swimmers in Tokyo, but I think we should be capable to beat this number.
     
    Rapšys, Šidlauskas, Savickas, Pancerevas, Navikonis, Pavlidi, Grigaitis, Teterevkova, Meilutytė, Plytnykaitė, Margevičius, Statkevičius. Yes, it's a very very brave prediction, I'm even dreaming about a women's freestyle relay, but a season and a half might not be enough.  Still, let's say a very questionable 12 for now
     
    Add 1 more to tennis and two more to wrestling, and I think you have my final prediction:
     
     
    Projected amount of Lithuanian athletes in Paris - 77 , could go up to 89 if we qualify men's basketball. 
     
    Projected amount of medals for Lithuanian athletes in Paris - 1 in athletics, 1 in swimming, 1 in modern pentathlon, 1 in rowing would be my guess, with possibilities of another 1-2 in athletics, 1 in swimming, 1-2 in rowing, 1 in canoeing sprint, 1 in boxing, 1-2 in basketball 3x3

    Well, unfortunately we lost Žurauskaitė to a severe injury this season, she was showing similar strength to Leščinskaitė and Kočergina entire off-season.
     
    With her out, there's less than 1% chance to see a Lithuanian women's relay this season in WC.

    Really refreshing to finally have a Lithuanian biathlete that is actually elite level after so many years of wondering if we'll score points this season, now you're expecting points every single race and mass starts a plenty.
     
    Diana Rasimovičiūtė was excellent, but she didn't have the resources that Strolia has right now. One of the biggest what ifs in Lithuanian sports history, because she went toe to toe with Makarainen in her junior years.
     
    Tomas Kaukėnas only really showed up during the majors, which are somewhat easier due to the limited country quotas during the competition.
     
    So Vytautas is pushing Lithuanian biathlon to a place where it never was before and it's a question if things are going to look this good ever again.
     
    Still, happy that after 16 years of following biathlon, I can also enjoy some glory days

    Very nice to see that our B team can still produce good enough results to get into top 40 at an IBU cup.
     
    Really shows that the Lithuanian men's team has some depth and that there's barely anything separating our 4th and 7th best.
     
    The only thing that Banys, Fomin, Romanov and Mačkinė need is to be able to challenge Kaukėnas and Dombrovski.
     
    Hopefully the future of Lithuanian biathlon will be safe in their hands.

    Perhaps I'm more lenient with the time frame of the transition.
     
    I believe that Bionaz, Giacomel, Passler and others are making a nice transition.
     
    I much more prefer my athletes start peaking at 25-ish, less chance of burning out and fading away quickly and better for character growth.
     
    I think they are in a very good place for their age, seeing as it is only their second world cup season. And only the very start of it.
