I miss those days of Sven Fischer, Fran Luck, Uschi Disl, Kati Whilelm, Gross and even Greis.


He's the best shooter in all of biathlon!

Re: Biathlon thread

Is biathlon popular in Bulgaria? If so, are they interested in hosting the WC races?

Because the European Championships is a worthless competition with no purpose.

Re: Biathlon thread

Biathlon is very popular here, our only Winter Olympic champion is from biathlon, we host WCh in 1993, but we should improve a lot to have WC again here

Congratulations

I remember European Championship was prestigious in the 80s, but since then only Bulgaria and a few others send their best competitors. Do you know why the EC kept such a high standing in Bulgaria?

Oh I remember that race. Our own Andreja Grasic has gambled away the gold medal at the last shooting, missing twice.

Re: Biathlon thread

It's hard for me to believe Bulgaria will host WC races soon. France, with so many champions does not host a WC Stage. They were supposed to two years ago, if I remember correctly, but the stage was moved to Austria due to lack of snow.

Re: Biathlon thread

I believe some French place is in the calendar for next season, or they changed it?

Re: Biathlon thread

Yup Annecy will be the third stop in the 13/14 WC season.

I suppose they can't afford to drop one of the usual host places because they all seem profitable and well visited.
