Cut my dad out of the pics (for privacy not because I hate him )           They even asked for an autograph for me

Thanks! I had tried a few months ago with another website but it wasn't working, now it seems to work fine. Edit: nevermind Edit 2: yesss finally

One small note - Ukraine saw their Biathlon budget slashed this upcoming season.

 

Also, the big news is that according to this article:

"– I WILL PERFORM UNTIL 2026, AND THEN FINISH MY CAREER. I THINK THESE YEARS WILL PASS QUICKLY. MY MOTIVATION IS GETTING STRONGER AND STRONGER EVERY DAY. I THINK THAT THE OLYMPICS IN ITALY IN 2026 WILL BE AMAZING. THERE IS NO QUESTION OF LEAVING EARLIER. 33 YEARS IS THE RIGHT TIME TO END YOUR CAREER. I DO NOT PLAN TO PERFORM UNTIL THE AGE OF 40 AS BJOERNDALEN, ”BO QUOTES TV2."  

I am not sure why it is all in caps, but that gives two more Olympic cycles (including this one).  Could he win 6 more large crystal globes?

Does Special Observed mean IBU Cup?

 

It is interesting to see Bormolini, Sanfillippo and Gontier all replaced by much younger athletes.
