So, @heywoodu- according to the IBU graphic, Brazil has a female quota (since there weren't 10 wildcards filled, I guess?) But then Greenland has two lol. I'm confused.

EDIT: So I think it's because Ukaleq and Uiloq and Bruna had the best IBU QPs that weren't under 180 (text says "no wch qualified athletes"). I don't know if this means they have a quota or if it's just the system being weird. Note Anja Ilic from Serbia also has a wildcard, and she's way above 180. :mumble:Same with Hulgaard and two Bosnians on the men's side (right). Worth looking into?

Well, she's flying back home Sunday (and can't stay in Europe a day longer because of visa rules, she's been here 90 days - the maximum - on Sunday). I'm rather interested in what this means do...a wild card for what exactly?

@ahjfcshfghb Apparently Brazil does indeed have a quota, but they have no athlete eligible to use it (average under 180 or one result under 150 if I'm not mistaken). The whole thing would be easier to figure out if IBU actually publishes the damn qualifying points list like they say they do, but they never actually do.

And last but not least, where did you find this? Looks like the Datacenter, but I can't see it anywhere :p 

I was wondering the same thing.  Maybe this is from Wikileaks :) !  The first biathlon themed dump!  To be a little more serious, I would love to see this, as well as the points list, races where points are available, how many, etc.
