New IBU points system

The IBU is bringing a new qualifying points system for 2015/16.

 

 

Here are some Qualifying Points FAQ:

 

1. How was this list made?
This list was created by scoring the competitions during the 2013-2014 season and the first trimester of the 2014-2015 season. The best three point scores were averaged from trimesters 2 and 3 from the 2013-14 season and trimester 1 from the 2014-2015 season. This is how the point list will be produced after each trimester.

2. What if an athlete has less than three point scoring races in the three trimester period?
If an athlete has only two point scores then a 10% penalty is given for their ranking list points. If an athlete has only one point score then a 20% penalty is given for the ranking list points.

3. Why do some athletes have 0.00 points?
Athletes who win a WC, WCH or OWG competition earn 0.00 points for that race. Athletes who have three wins over the three trimester scoring period will therefore have zero points.

4. When will the IBU Qualifying Points List be updated next?
The qualifying points list will be updated at the end of each trimester and posted to the IBU Members Center. 5. When will the new qualification system enter into force? The new qualification, quota and wild card system will be in force for the 2015-2016 season. The qualifying points list will be based on the results of all three trimeters from the 2014-2015 season.

On Saturday 19 July, the Victorian Championship Sprint event was held at Whiskey Flat Range, Mt Hotham.

Snow conditions were the best in many years and with the sun shining and temperature rising to 1 degree C, conditions were perfect for competitors, officials and spectators.

There were two race starts, with most of those aged over 18 in the first race group, with others following in the second group.

Winner of the blue ribbon Men's Open was Damon Morton, with Giles Richardson taking the silver and Hamish McLean the bronze.

In the blue ribbon Women's Open, sole participant Irene Dunn took the gold.

   

Australian Biathlon has been thrilled to host visiting International Biathlon Union official Coach Ubaldo Prucker. Coach Prucker is one of the founding members of the IBU and was the official responsible for running biathlon at both the 2006 Olympic Winter Games and the 2013 Winter University Games. Coach Prucker has been conducting a review to assist Australian Biathlon with our long term development. After presenting participants with their medals, Coach Prucker very kindly ran a skiing clinic, for participants and coaches alike. Here he is pictured with our youngest participant, Nicholas Wilkinson, who took part in the Mens Under 9 laser class.

Congratulations to Alex Almoukov for making Olympic selection. The Russian-born athlete has been travelling throughout Europe for months competing on the World Cup circuit along with teammate Mark Raymond for the one spot Australia hoped to be allocated. Almoukov had the over all better results so the anxious wait for a quota allocation from the international federation is now over. We wish Alex continued success in Canada and will post more news as it happens.

Mark Raymond

 Well done "Raymsey"

 Mark Raymond has made us all proud with his many years of dedication and training in biathlon. Mark and Alex have been training hard over the last few months for a shot at the top spot however Mark's results did not quite pull through in this highly competitive sport. Mark is well known on the circuit and has helped many other athletes along the way. He is a true Gentleman and Sportsman and we look forward to catching up with him when he returns to Aus.
