Unbelievable medal Ema I can not even remember the last SVK medal from juniors competition  

btw Kapusta means in Slovak cabbage

I guess have to take back what I said about it being unusual for California to have biathletes. Auburn Ski Club was the club I was taking about though (as being our only biathlon club in state).

Their current coach at Auburn is Brian Halligan, a former US Youth and Junior biathlete who never quite made it to the full National Team.  One thing that impresses me about the list is variety.  Instead of all from Vermont or New Hampshire, of the 16 athletes, there are 9 states represented.  That is great for the health of biathlon in the United States.  This is even without Wyoming, Idaho, Wisconsin or New Hampshire who often are represented.  I think the hiring of Tim Burke as the Youth/Junior Development Director has really allowed the Youth/Junior section of USBA to develop in ways it previously had not.

Here is the team packet from the upcoming World Junior/Youth World Championship.

 

Looks like a limited stream for this event. 

It looks like the Individual will not be streamed.  Possible Sprint, Pursuit and Relay's.

  • Sindo changed the title to Biathlon IBU Junior & Youth World Championships 2021

Some interesting stat i read today (maybe someone is interested):

 

The last 4 german male gold medalists at junior world championships were:

Tom Barth (sprint 2011)

Johannes Kühn (pursuit 2011)

Max Barchwitz (individual 2020)

Danilo Riethmüller (pursuit 2020)


I was quite surprised when I read this, I would have thought that Germany had many more individual world champions during that time (Russia won 10 golds during that time and Norway won 7). Will be interesting to see how Barchwitz and especially Riethmüller will develop.

I think that from the US, I would love 2 top 10s.  I agree that any top 20 would be good.  I think the relay's, top 8?

 

No idea this year.  A few US biathletes did compete in IBU Cup events.  But who knows.

 

I think Greenland will get another medal!

 

I also think that 10 total teams will get medals.

Which 10 nations do you have in mind?

Last year 12 different nations won a medal and surprisingly Sweden wasn’t one of them. I doubt that Bulgaria will medal again and Belarus/USA each won only one bronze last year, on the other hand this time nations like Kazakhstan, Ukraine or New Zealand could medal.


The following individual medalists will be young enough to return (in the same age category):

- Amy Baserga (won bronze in junior women individual)

- Linda Zingerle (won gold in youth women sprint and bronze in youth women pursuit)

- Oceane Michelon (won bronze in youth women sprint)

- Anastasia Shevchenko (won gold in junior women sprint and gold in junior women pursuit)

- Aasne Skrede (won silver in junior women sprint and silver in women junior pursuit)

- Danilo Riethmüller (won gold in junior men pursuit)

- Alex Cisar (won bronze in junior men pursuit)


From a German perspective I hope that Danilo Riethmüller will win at least one medal again. Not sure about the women’s side though, there doesn’t seem to be a special talent. Germany seems to have the same problem as usual: They just aren’t competitive in cross-country.

 

I guess on the women’s side Zingerle should dominate at youth level and Shevchenko/Aasne should dominate at junior level, on the men’s side it looks more open.
