Congratulation to QFM. Interesting Fourcade was very week on last round.

Gah, Pokljuka sucked.

Tiril says she has some lungs issues, which should not be serious, but she needs rest. She arguably should not have started in Pokljuka at all, but wanted to give it a go being the overall leader.
The bad news for Norway is that Olsbu also seems to be struggling physically lately. And the last shooting today was a real disaster, she reverted to her old ways of pushing too hard on the track and then rushing through her shots. It could not have ended differently. Still a decent result altogether.

Happy for Vittozzi for finally showing signs of life. And Tandrevold was finally useful for once for knocking Wierer down a spot and saving some space between her and Tiril on the scoreboard.😈

So JTB beats Martin with 1 more mistake. I think JT being around really messes with Fourcade's mental. Let's see how the WCh will be. Great to have QFM winning!!

So so happy with Vittozzi's race :D You can see it really means a lot to her.
Oeberg will be a serious candidate for all the races in the WCh, and who knows might still be in it for the World Cup Overall.

Loving the Bescond resurgence. Even though the skiing times are still not amazing. It would have been sad to see her fade away without more podiums.

Norway expected win, JT not as dominant as expected tho.

Great podiums for Italy and Czechia, happy for them!

France women failed massively today

Can't wait to watch it later today :love:

In other news, Anfisa Reztsova accused Fourcade and Eckhoff (and the other Norwegians) of being doped, and now he's going to sue her. Good. That woman really needs to shut up.

Didn't Marketa get her first World Cup race win in Anterselva sprint? I hope she can do it again tomorrow. Many faster skiiers and shooters must fail for it to happen, though. That shooting range time she is taking is not the tea. Gives her literally no chanche for anything with a single miss. Although she is such a good skier.

Interesting, I've read that the Czech team is being helped with their shooting by Kateřina Emmons, who won the 2008 Olympic Gold in the 10-metre air-rifle event: maybe it's finally paying off?

Only two misses is an amazing feat, with the second-best shooters Italy recording 6 misses.

Ironically, her hubby Matthew, who won an Olympic gold in 2004, is allegedly doing the same job for the US team.

Amazing race for Dunkee. She was almost dying on that last lap but looks good for silver. Roiseland will win! Oeberg kind of choked at the last shooting, three misses when she was clearly leading.
