A place for the discussion of all things not closely related to the sport and its competitive side. (as always, locked for the duration of major international championship)

Heard something about going back to 30km/50km interval start in Falun 2015, I hope!

That would be great!

Though to be fair, today's race wasn't boring :)

Yep, logical tactic if one doesn't want sprint finish against Northug :)

I can't remember when was the last time Italy won zero medals at Worlds and pretty poor performance from Finland (though women could have done much better in the relay with a little bit different team...)

Only one silver for Justyna Kowalczyk, that's certainly a major disappointment :( But the Polish jumpers partly made up for it. First Stoch's gold, then the first ever medal for Poland in the team event (although they originally finished fourth, before it was announced that Norway's score was miscalculated - very bizarre!)
