a) Sorry, not sure what you are trying to say.

b) I don’t wonder why Norway is able to develop world class speed skaters unlike Germany. Germany doesn’t develop world class speed skaters because they don’t want to and they don’t want to, because thanks to the GDR past German coaches are too „scared“ to develop a doping program. Other nations don’t have that „baggage“.

There are other nations who aren't scared of doping or other questionable methods (NOP in athletics, Larry Nassar sex abuse in gymnastics, jiffy bags in British cycling and so on). This is a problem with winter sports in Germany in general, other than luge & bobsleigh just about every other winter sport is in a slump lately. Biathlon, cross country skiing, ski jumping, nordic combined has also seen better days especially that #1 guy isn't German anymore. Speed skating just fits the trend.

Yes, all endurance events. I understand the coaches though, doping your athletes as a German coach is pretty close to suicide. In the US no one really gives a shit. No surprise that British rowing, British cycling and Swedish biathlon was made big by German coaches who weren’t wanted here, they can’t pull off the same shit in Germany.

You know who wears sunglasses inside?
