Ruhpolding Training and Faces Video
|28.02.2012, Ruhpolding / IBU Info JK|
|2012 IBU World Championships|
|Today’s unofficial training for both men and women means countdown clock ticks away for them just as it does for the fans. Unofficial training is always two days before the first competition, with Official Training always the day before the first competition.
All Teams in the Stadium
On Monday, there were just a few athletes and coaches in the Chiemgau Arena, but today all of the teams were out in force. With the most important competitions of the year about to start, it was all business; checking out the tracks, the wind on the shooting range (there was none), and testing skis in the soft snow. It was the same for the women in the morning as well as the men in the afternoon.
Like Late March
The weather today seemed a bit like late March, rather than the end of February; plus six Celsius, some fog creeping down the mountains and intermittent drizzle. However, no one seemed to notice or care, it was a “work day” with a dozen days of serious business ahead.
Training Video from Today
The following video compilation “Ruhpolding Training; Faces on the Shooting Range” includes clips from the women’s and women’s training, with some quick face shots of both coaches and athletes.
