    Sebastien Lepape pulling a Bradbury 
    Team Event is another chance.
     
    You mean individual skating Sprint ? A podium in the Team Sprint seems possible but not very likely, but M Relay is much better than a long shot. Bronze in Pyeongchang 2018, Bronze in Seefeld 2019, Bronze in Oberstdorf 2021 ... and now with Jouve as the anchor who has greatly improved his distance skills lately.
     
    Alright

    15, to, at least, maintain the tally from 2014 and 2018. A second straight downward trend would be disastrous before Paris 2024 but that's what we deserve.

    The question is what happened to Skottheim? 56. with only two misses! They need her for the Relay, I think.

    Annnnnnd she's out 
    Skeleton in France is kind of dead, but the federation, who does nothing to bring it back to life, seemingly assess that preventing any TV coverage is better than putting the sport in the spotlight, even if the athlete doesn't deliver.

    The women's list is kinda worrying Look at this : Hildebrand (enough said) ; Wiesensarter or Weidel would have been undying journewomen a few years back, now they almost have a WC regular status ; Hettich is probably the most promising of the lot, which speaks for itself  ; Schneider and Kebinger are already 24 and their IBU Cup performances are not particularly thrilling.
    Of course Preuss is still recovering, Voigt not included, but Herrmann and Hinz are reaching the end of the path with downward trajectories.

    This very weird. I'm quite sure France beat South Korea, 45-35 in the final. I checked the results page, all results seem correct, except this.
     
    Here is the video for evidence. I have timestamped it to play at France's winning point and if you go towards the end, you can watch the award ceremony, with France on top.

    She has not met those requirements. But those are FFSG standards, not NOC ones. Winter sports in France are split between two federations : the FFS (snow sports) and the FFSG (ice sports) - also the FFHG (hockey) but they are not really Olympics-related (yet) . FFSG is a mess and (kind of) a disgrace, since Albertville 1992 they've brought home 6 of the 83 WOG French medals. Despite being one of the few countries with a functional ice track, they're not able to field more than 1 skeleton athlete per sex, and this is recent. Also Bessard is the child of the track's technical manager, Defayet the child of a track's worker 
    In a word I don't see them rejecting this quota. She worked hard to get it and that's some free advertising for the sport/federation, "look we qualify an athlete in skeleton". SPOIL : they did not nothing for it.

    @dcro @prso1000 Crnković is in the start-list for tomorrow's race ! 
    According to my calculations he needs 69.1 points, which is fairly manageable. Last week this was achieved by finishing 1'30 and 1'41 behind the winner.

    Honestly, I'm in shock.
     
    Being a Lithuanian biathlon fan, I always kept thinking if we're ever going to see anything better than Diana Rasimovičiūtė.
     
    Now, nearly eleven years later, Lithuania is back in the top 10 and it is the highest placement for any Lithuanian biathlete since our independence.
     
    What is even more amazing is that TODAY, January 13th we are celebrating the 31st year of our independence after fourteen brave civilians were crushed underneath Soviet tanks for peacefully defending our TV Tower. 
     
    What a day to be alive, I will always be thankful for what Vytautas Strolia did today for biathlon and Lithuania, hopefully, just hopefully he gets to climb onto a podium before he decides to retire. But for today, I'm happy to call him the best biathlete that Lithuania has ever produced in modern biathlon.

    SalamAkhi reacted to hckošice in Road to Beijing 2022 Poll #1 | Which country will get more medals in total in Beijing 2022?   
    Yes, right I totally forgot about Snowboard Cross, that is at least 2 strong medals chances, W and Mixed.
     
    Ice Dance should be a lock for sure, just did not want to jinx them and avoid any eventual troubles like for example the upper part costume failure of Gabriela
     
    Overall it should be as I said pretty even battle between the 2 nations, SWE forecast probably more medals but obviously it can end also the other way.

    Biathlon will be the key sport. First of all because both France and Sweden can win a huge amount of medals in it, then because it's probably the most unpredictable and open to surprises sport of the Games. France could get 10 medals in biathlon, but could also get 3, same applies for Sweden. France have higher chances though, since our team is stronger overall. Pretty much every French biathlete can win a medal individually, not the case for the Swedes.
     
    Ice Dance is not a maybe, that's a probably. Probably gold by the way. 3 in Cross-country would be a maximisation of the chances, manageable but still hard to attain. Snowboard-cross is also a great supplier (between 1 and 3).

    "The Monobob Series may have a lower number of races taken into consideration."
     
    Interestingly, it's not specified precisely in the document, but both commentators and IBSF rankings are making it clear that best 5 results are to count.
