Yep and I don’t know how much she has ever practiced shooting. Never tried a biathlon competition anyway even at junior level. Would not want her to leave XC but by this result it looks like she is more of à talent in both skiing and shooting than Stina Nilsson:d

I know this time of year not everyone will be close to being at the same level of fitness, but still, Karlsson coming in and doing this even for an exhibition race isn't much of a great sign for biathlon :lol:

Not really :dbut Elvira was about  1 minute behind Karlsson in a 7.5km race (not sure if that is à good or bad sign) the day before. But she managed to beat Maja Dahlqvist (who may not be the best individual distansen racer) etc.

Thomas Bormolini has announced that he is retiring.  This was a surprise, but there was speculation that he might when he was not listed in the team earlier this week.

there were already rumors about that before the season ended, just after the Olympics...

 

I wish him all the best, even if it hurts a lot our team losing him and Dominik Windisch all at once just before the beginning of the home Olympics 4-year cycle...

On the flip side, it gives a definite 4 year plan for three of this group really move to the forefront.  It will be interesting to see if they will keep the 5 slots after this season with both Windisch and Bormolini out.
