We have analysed Julia's points at the end of Trimester 1 for this and the previous two seasons to see the correlation between her shooting performance and world cup points won per competition. We have used the new point system and adjusted Julia's score from the last two seasons accordingly.
She won 62 points per competition in Trimester 1 this season, compared to 32.1 points in the 2021/2022 and 26.5 points in the 2020/2021 season.
We then broke down Julia's shooting to the prone, standing, and combined accuracy. Her accuracy in the prone went from 72% in the 2020/2021 season to 84% in 2021/2022 and is currently at 99%!
Her accuracy in the standing went from 81% in the 2020/2021 season to 78 in 2021/2022 and is currently at 85%. Julia's combined accuracy at the end of the 2020/2021 season was 77%, a season after at 81%. It is currently at 92%.
We also analysed the change in her shooting speed from Trimester 1 in the 2020/2021 season - when she started to apply Giachino's input - until the end of Trimester 1 this winter. We can observe that her speed first increased and then fell dramatically - together with Julia's wavering confidence. It picked up this season again.
