Just got in from the competition excellent day

I Think the tickets for the sprint men's, women's sprint, men and women's pursuit and men and women's mass start came to about 225 for the two of us and that was bought before end of December which give a 20% discount

Lovely warm day with the sun shining tarjei boe winning by 0.1 of a second in front on Martin fourcade boe shooting clear and fourcade having two penalties which meant he had to ski 300 metres etc should make for an interesting pursuit evnt on Saturday

What a difference from the UK in attitude to the shoot sports where the kindergartens are closed and the teachers take in little ones up the stadium to watch there national team compete and see the excitement of them watching, then after trying to high five the athletes and get their autographs when they leave the competition area

Then we stopped to watch the young stars which 30 of the top boys then the top 30 girls aged 15/16 from different districts of Norway compete, With The difference from the adults they leave the rifles on the shooting mat and shoot twice from the prone position and ski with no rifle
