And the young Slettemark girl, but I doubt we'll see her in the World Cup yet. Same thing for Lotte Lie and Rieke de Maeyer :p 

Don't know what you mean by "yet" but she's actually due to start her WC career in Hochfilzen (source : an answer to her last IG post) :coffee:

It seems like the pre-season marriages have left even the French TV confused?

That news is a happy, happy end to the weekend, merci! :hyper: 

 

It's been a long time since I've been so excited to see someone's World Cup debut in any sport.

Looking forward to it too, though I doubt she will appear anywhere near the top spots (even the points), arguably since there will be no individual.

Newt week in the Norwegian Cup also.

Sure, but she's only 19 and it's her debut, she does have a bit of time to start growing into that :p 

 

Last season she has already shown she can very much hold her own in the IBU Cup upper half. Which is not a promise of a top-30 finish in the World Cup, but definitely shows she has the potential to at least challenge for a top half finish. Which would be a more than excellent start.

I cheer for the Americans, the Swiss, the French and those from "smaller" biathlon nations.  I lived in France and Switzerland.  I actually just published a paper about the first of many woeful decades of Swiss biathlon.  I do not have strong feelings against anyone, mostly because in the US the coverage we get, if any, is never the sultry details.

I will also be pulling for her.  I love the Greenland flag.

We've got common ground as well, as I generally cheer for Sarah Beaudry :d And for one of the Chinese girls, but sadly she's not in the World Cup that often.

 

Wierer....let's just say I feel sort of the same about her as @Werloc does about Ilmars Bricis :p 

which married man or woman did Dorothea date? :p

How I could forgot about those Greek and Turkish biathletes and Victoria Padial Hernandez! I cheer them too.

It's probably a larger nation syndrome. 

 

I'm happy when there's new countries joining the sport, but I can't say that I ever openly cheered for those smaller nations when I sometimes feel like a smaller nation myself with our juniors racing for 80th place :p

That's the regions of the IBU Cup where I've spent more time on analyzing it than the top of the World Cup :d
