Re: Biathlon thread

I can't believe Bjorndalen's idea of not ending his career last week on a very high note. Now his barely qualified for the pursuit.

He's trying to be the oldest man to finish in the top-10 for the World Cup. Will need a decent finish to accomplish that, he's in 10th now and the 11-15 guys have several placed high after the sprint.

Bjoerndalen is the GOAT, he can do whatever he wants.

Some are also speculating he might suspend his retirement again. Maybe he'd like to compete in his 7th Olympics in 2018?

That would be awesome, of course. The GOAT can do anything he wishes, as long as he is fit to compete. At that age, nothing can stain his legacy; any achievement only stretches it further.

I would say, amazing job done by Germans technicians regarding ski preparation which has been amazing..

This makes Julian Eberhard's win yesterday all the more impressive.
