The World Championships have just begun. Norway managed to win the mixed relay ahead of France, with the arranging Czech Republic taking a most welcome bronze medal. Both the Russians and the Germans, perennial medal favourites, were surprisingly far off the pace. The Russians were at least in the lead after the first two (female) laps, but faded quickly afterwards.

Today we have the sprint for both sexes. Programme is here:

Who do you think will win? My money is on Martin Fourcade in the men's and Miriam Gössner in the women's. But as a Norwegian I hope either Emil Hegle Svendsen or Tora Berger can challenge also.

Tora Berger should win it, except if Domracheva/Gössner manage to shoot clear. In the men's, it is impossible to bet against Martin Fourcade, the Russians showed nothing and Svendsen looked a bit slow on the skis during the relay to challenge. I'll be cheering for the underdogs as always, I'd love to see Moravec get a medal, for example.

Gossner is so weak in shooting, I want some unexpected medalist.

For winners I will choice Svendsen and Zaitseva.
Hope BG will take some top 30

Gold to Svendsen, not a real surprise. Silver to Fourcade - the favourites stood up well. Bronze to Fak, not surprising that either. The unexpected medalist failed to appear. Perhaps in the women's race?

Anev 11th, good race by him.
