Teresa Stadlober Might Join Team Russia

Teresa Stadlober Might Join Team Russia

Newsfeed
No need to worry - the best Austrian skier has no known intentions to switch her citizenship. It has become known , however, ( via Yulia Belorukova) that Teresa Stadlober will join Markus Cramer's group in training in the spring and the summer of 2021. Along with Pellegrino and De Fabiani as previously reported. It starts looking like " the world vs Norway". Well, after Oberstdorf-2021 that basically looked like the Norwegian Championships with Bolshunov invited as a solo foreign star, it only makes sense to try something new & drastic in the Olympic season.

Max Volkov, ex-assistant coach of Yuri Borodavko at Team Russia, will coach the Chinese national team. Volkov is well known in the international skiing circles - not the least as a " Voice of Bolshunov " as he was often seen helping media to interpret for the Russian great ( who consistently refuses to learn English). Volkov will have to undergo the planet's most stringent quarantine before joining his new team in May. He will join there Nikita Kryukov, the Olympic champion of Vancouver , who is a trainer of the Chinese sprinters.

No Fans At Oberstdorf 2021 After All

No Fans At Oberstdorf 2021 After All

Newsfeed
They've tried valiantly - look at the picture we illustrate this story with: see how wide apart the seats are arranged at the Oberstdorf Reid Ski Stadium? Should say " were" : the decision was announced on Tuesday afternoon and the Nordic World Ski Championships 2021 will take place without spectators present. Covid won't loose its grip on Germany, the country politicians discuss even more severe tightening of already tough lockdown. In this situation it was, probably, the only outcome - even if the championships is still 5 weeks to go.

Sergey Ustiugov & Last Chance Saloon For Oberstdorf

Sergey Ustiugov & Last Chance Saloon For Oberstdorf

Leaders, Newsfeed
It was Sergey Ustiugov 's last chance to jump on a wagon, departing for Oberstdorf 2021 - and he used it with his customary flair. The world's best skier of 2016/17 had an exceptionally rough season thus far: bad case of Covid hit him in October in altitude camp in Italy and, unlike many other skiers, the Russian Bear wasn't lucky enough to recover quickly. As the result, zero international races this season while the competition within Team Russia grew tremendously.

On Thursday the 28 year old convincingly…

Flying Latvian: Patricija Eiduka, 20, Causes Sensation At Davos

Newsfeed
..it’s not the first time you see the name of Patricija Eiduka mentioned on Dailyskier.com: we've been following the progress of the Latvian skier for some time now. Progress? It's a leap forward! The last weekend a 20 year old caused quite a sensation finishing at first 18th in Sprint - then 8th in 10k F on Sunday. Just a few seconds behind Jessie Diggins and outpacing too many really strong athletes to count! We think the star is born - clearly, augmented in that status by the fact that Patricija is from the country that never before produced the skiers of that level ( although several strong biathletes!). Instead of doing a traditional interview, we've asked Patty to write a bit of autobiography so far, stressing what she herself…
