We didn’t go home after Sochi.
The Olympics may be done, but the world’s best biathletes will be duking it out in World Cup races until late March. This week, we have 3 races in Pokljuka, Slovenia. Then we will travel to Finland and finally to Norway. The same cast of characters that you enjoyed watching in February will be back. Darya Domracheva and Tora Berger will be battling for the season overall World Cup title and Martin Fourcade will certainly put on an entertaining show.
Here’s the exciting part- you don’t have to wait 4 more years for more biathlon!
I know many of you have become big biathlon fans in the last few weeks and that’s exciting! I know I am a little bias, all right, maybe a lot, but I absolutely love this sport. It is suspenseful to watch, extremely difficult to master, and unlike anything else out there. It’s also relatively undiscovered, especially in America. I would love to share more about it with you.
You can stream World Cup races live or watch replays of the highlights anytime on Biathlon World TV. Check it out. Our next race is on Thursday; the women will race at 9:30 EST. Tune in and cheer us on! When watching live, I recommend pulling up the live timing results too for a little more excitement.
I promise I will put up some more blog posts soon with Sochi pictures and stories about what it was like to compete in Olympics for the first time. Stay tuned.
