Cross-Country Skiing 2018 - 2019 Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Quite interesting developments in the world of Brazilian cross-country skiing, mostly the women. The second stage of the Brazilian rollerski circuit is being held these days in São Carlos, results can be found here:


Mostly look at the women's results and specifically those of Taynara da Silva and Amanda Lima, both only 16 years of age and having maybe a little over a year of rollerski training. Last year in a 7.5km classic race they lost 17 and 25 minutes on Bruna, Friday in a 5km classic race they both lost less than 4 minutes (and I can guarantee Bruna was definitely not holding back). Also in the freestyle sprint they've gotten a lot closer and besides them, there are also some U19 races with several other girls from 2002-2004 (and even one from 2007!). A bit over a year ago Bruna and Gabi were the only Brazilian female athletes born after 1990, now suddenly there's a whole new generation of teenage girls getting started in the sport and that is just really, really good to see :cheer:
