With World Championships finally underway in Oslo, things are getting busy again. Here’s what’s been cooking this past week:
- We had the final World Cup races before WSCs in Drammen; so we had race snapshots for the distance and sprint races, and then the requisite recaps as well.
- I pulled together a few quick graphs summarizing various nation’s performances at World Champs over the years, as a bit of a preview.
- It may sound silly, but people with a double-L in their name do tend to perform better in WC sprint racing (although the difference is far, far from being statistically significant).
- Then we had WSCs kicking off with the freestyle sprint, and the accompanying recaps, and also some context based on previous performances.
