  1. the best winter sport is back - yes, that crazy combination of cross country skiing and shooting.

    super fit athletes in skin tight lycra... and woolly hats. yum!

    all that and the legend that is Ole Einar.

    I will be showing this thread to Mrs Maggot. I really enjoy watching biathlon. Last year she words to the effect of "You must be the only weirdo who likes watching this crap!" I can't wait to tell her that you two are weirdos as well:wacko:

    it's the best!

    those guys (and girls) are seriously fit, to be able to go all out on the skiing (and Ole Einar has won cross country races) and then control your body enough to shoot straight, then get back up to racing speed is incredible.

    Yep, there's no shortage of the winter sports on the box here. Makes for good viewing, and from the comfort of my sofa with a large mug of coffee, and lots of cheese sarnies. There's a lot to be said for not working. :biggrin:
