    After seeing the this competition I think that the world cup and world championships will be very funny to watch. I think it's very good that it isn't just one or two big nations that take all the good results. I mean yesterday it was Japan, Russia and Poland in the top three, and that haven't actually been usual.

    You are right, it is good to see a big variety of teams. It is WAY more interesting for the audience. Usually it was Finland, Austria, Japan and Germany who scored high, but not there is more competition. I mean I still cheer for the german team, but I also like all the others. I´d never have the guts to do what they are doing! It is way too high and way too scary to jump!

    It's not that scary if you start when you are little and has the right mind. I did some ski jumping until I was 14, but I didn't have the right mind so I quit.

    One Swede managed to qualify in Innsbruck, that's good, hopefully he will make it to the final round.

    But I think Kasai was even more impressive.

    Tord Wiksten was second in the biathlon, that's impressing since been better than 18th in the world cup, and that wasn't even this year.

    Well, it's hard to follow every event. I feel that this year when I'm studying at the university I got much less time to watch TV than last year. But I saw the biathlon today, Magdalen Forsberg won again, and I saw the qualification to Bischofshofen, Malysz did best again. Tomorrow will be a funny day on Eurosport, so I hope I will be able to watch some.

    Yeah, I agree totally. I don't know who could possibly manage to slip before Malysz.

    Actually I missed most of the ski jumping, since Eurosport delayed it until 19.00, well Malysz is incredible.

    Well I did not watch it on EUROSPORT. I watched it on RTL, a channel that bought the rights to broadcast the Tour. So I saw it life.

    Well, Jaina it's since RTL bought all the rights to Vier-Schanzen-Tournee that I have to wait until evenings to watch Eurosport.

    Oh, yes, Magdalena Forsberg is incredible, it can't be funny competing against her.

    She finished like a minute or so before the second came in! Everybody missed a lot of targets, but she just missed 2 of 20 I think!

    I would never be good in biathlon, I just can't understand how they can hit that little target, after skiing about 10 km. I would be dead.

    Actually I missed it today. I turned on Eurosport to see the second round, and they had cut the program in half so it was already finished (they don't send live).
