Wednesday Social Wrap

Wednesday Social Wrap

August may be the month most people go on vacation, but this is when biathletes really start to check how their hard summer training is paying off: so do not be surprised if you see a lot of photos from competitions on roller skis on their social media pages. Obviously, the one that is already history was the Blinkfestivalen, but it was not the only event worth attention of the world of tweets and posts.

Time to get "serious"

There is no need to wrap the results of the famous Norwegian Kermesse, when we have an article that does that. But it is fairly clear that our athletes enjoyed the highly competitiveness of the event and the great support by the public, so here's some of the best posts from Blink.

But prior to it, Deggendorf, in Germany, also featured an impressive field for a great show of summer biathlon.

But still enjoying Summer

Maybe this was the key to success for Hanna Oeberg, who picked up her mass start form from where she left in Oslo, by winning in Sandnes. Look, isn't this the best way to be mentally ready for a hard fight on track?

And for sure, looking for a nice and cold stream of water is what most are hoping for during these hot summer days in the North Hemisphere, just like Tomas Krupcik we'd all jump in.

Den 86. Jsem rád, že to mám dneska za sebou. Tréninky přitvrdily a v tom horku je to náročný. Aspoň, že se tu dá zchladit skoro kdekoliv ve zdejších říčkách a jezírkách. Po tvrdým tréninku neexistuje lepší regenerace, než se naložit do ledový vody. * I am glad the day is over. Trainings got harder and and the temperatures are not making it easier. Fortunately there are lot of rivers and little lakes with ice cold water. They are the best reward after training. #sport #training #hardwork #biathlon #ceskybiatlon #dyckybiatlon #trénink #mojesezona #photooftheday #fitness #instagood #motivation  #regenerace #fun #healthy #noexcuses #jedemedal #biatlonjeboj

Maybe not to the levels of Canmore, but all winter fans are surely counting the days separating us from the first snowfall.

​Friends... or more

July 30th was in the International Day of Friendship, which we celebrated collecting some of our favourite stories in biathlon. But a week later, we still like to check how our athletes hang out with each other, showing that true friendships can be built through sport.

Congratulations to Johannes and Hedda Dæhli Boe, who will be a family of three in January 2020!

Yet, training goes on

With only a few months separating us from the start of the next biathlon season, athletes are pushing themself to the hardest in order to find that little extra to make it a memorable year. Sometimes, in order to do so, they push too hard, but failing is part of the process.

Some other times, it's motivation finding you...
