    Welcome everyone once again to the lovely city of Ostersund, here in Sweden! Today we are going to attend to the Final event of the first Biathlon World Tour. The sky is blue, there's a chilly but comfortable -13 degrees Celsius, 9 degrees Fahrenheit, and the snow is ready. Let's hope our athletes are ready too, despite only having 24 hours to recover from yesterday's effort.

     

    The starting order today will be inverse order of qualification, leaving the fastest men from yesterday at the end, MM Flex and robot Speedprone Aimbot. Only they were able to complete the circuit in less than an hour.

     

    So without further ado... Let's start!

    888478820.jpg.0.jpgDropped Pass opens the show!

     

    He had a slow start yesterday but picked it up on time to qualify as 4th in the second semifinal. Today he starts off with exactly the same pace as he did yesterday, arriving to the first checkpoint just one second faster.

     

    He missed 8 shots yesterday, for a 60% accuracy. Let's see how he does today.

    Dropped Pass 1st Shooting: ⚪⚪⚫⚪⚪

     

    Only one miss for Dropped Pass. That's already a better performance compared to yesterday. He'll need the fewest misses possible to compete with the monsters later on.

     

    Riley bested Pass by almost 40 seconds yesterday. Wonder what does she have in the store for today.

    Riley starts with a faster pace compared to both Pass and her race yesterday. 2:31 to 2:39 and 2:35 respectively, which gives he the momentary lead at the first checkpoint.

     

    Dropped Pass has a decent second lap, propelled by only having to do one extra lap, and arrives at the second checkpoint in 22:36. He has got there 25 seconds faster than yesterday!

    Dropped Pass 2nd Shooting: ⚪⚫⚪⚪⚪

    Riley Carswell 1st Shooting: ⚪⚪⚪⚫⚪

     

    Very good shooting so far from Pass and Carswell! Pass is shooting like a professional sniper, quick and right to the place. If his legs can hold, it's looking nice! Riley only missed 5 shots yesterday, that was not her problem, but she has to make sure that it continues that way.

     

    Ole Einar joins the race trying to prove he can do it better than yesterday!

    Einar starts a bit slower than yesterday, arriving to the first checkpoint at 10:10, just 4 seconds behind Riley. He got there in 9:49 yesterday.

     

    Riley posts a good second lap at 3:05 pace, getting to the second checkpoint 9 seconds faster than what Pass did.

     

    Pass himself is shooting really well, missing only 2 shots through his first two shootings, and posts a very solid 3:05 pace in the third lap.

    Teddy Smith time!

     

    Dropped Pass 3rd Shooting: ⚪⚪⚫⚫⚪

    Riley Carswell 2nd Shooting: ⚫⚪⚫⚪⚪

    Ole Einar 1st Shooting: ⚫⚪⚪⚫⚫

     

    welp. Pass goes from 2 misses in two rounds to three misses in the next 5 shots. That will hurt him big time.

     

    Riley was having a good race, but she needs to hit those targets if she wants to continue at the top when the juggernauts start to step on the snow.

     

    Ole missed just 4 shots yesterday, being one of the best in this category, yet his misses here. Is the pressure getting to him in the Final?

    Teddy smith starts moderately quick. Athletes are taking it slow for the first lap today, with none of the four going below 10 minutes, but smith being the closest one, at 10:02.

     

    Einar is heavily penalized by his 4 misses and his pace drops to 3:25 in the second lap. For comparison Pass' pace was 2:59 and Carswell's 3:05. Einar himself posted 3:14 yesrday. Not cool.

     

    Riley is also hurt by having to do three penalty laps and loses her temporary leadership to Pass in the third checkpoint.

     

    Pass arrives at the 4th checkpoint with 5 penalty laps and just 4 seconds faster than yesterday. He will need a superb last lap to be in contention.

    Marcus "The Leg" Cunningham!

     

    Dropped Pass 4th Shooting: ⚫⚪⚪⚫⚫

    Riley Carswell 3rd Shooting: ⚪⚫⚪⚪⚪

    Ole Einar 2nd Shooting: ⚫⚫⚪⚪⚫

    Teddy Smith 1st Shooting: ⚪⚫⚫⚪⚪

     

    One of the best skiers of the competition joins the race in Marcus Cunningham, 4th best time from the Semifinals. Let's see if he starts at the insane pace he showed yesterday.

     

    Pass Continues to miss late in the race, with 6 misses in the last 10 shots.

     

    Riley puts up a good performance in the third shooting, she needed just that!

     

    Einar has already missed two more shots than he did yesterday, and he still has 10 targets to go. Not a good day for the Norwegian biathlete.

     

    Teddy smith also starts with a not ideal performance.

    we get our first athlete on the finish line! Dropped pass has a below average last lap and finishes in 1 hour and 3 minutes. 4 seconds faster than yesterday, but probably not enough to be in the top three at the end of the day.

     

    Dropped Pass finishes with a time of 1 Hour and 3 minutes.

     

    Riley's legs are starting to show tiredness as he posts a 3:17 pace in the fourth lap despite only missing once in the previous shooting round. She arrives to the last checkpoint 3 seconds behind what Pass did.

     

    Einar is having his worst day on the field today. 6 misses already... well... he arrives to the third checkpoint in 37 minutes and 9 seconds, more than a minute after Pass and Riley. Yesterday he got there in just 35 minutes and 9 seconds.

     

    Smith continues to get first places as he gets to the second checkpoint with a 25 seconds lead over Riley.

     

    Cunningham becomes the first athlete today to drop below 10 minutes in the first lap, but not at the mad pace he did yesterday. Still, 9:40 is a very good time!

    Porter Rose!

    Ole Einar 3rd Shooting: ⚫⚪⚫⚫⚪

    Teddy Smith 2nd Shooting: ⚫⚪⚫⚫⚫

    Marcus Cunningham 1st Shooting: ⚫⚫⚫⚪⚫

     

    We get into the top 3 with Porter Rose in the race.

     

    Plenty of black dots in this shootings :( Einar has already missed 9, while he missed 4 yesterday, and Smith and Cunningham miss 4 respectively in this round. Ladies, gentlemen, this is a Final! The public deserves better!

    Rile finishes the race with a slightly better pace than Rose and that gets her to beat him just by a few seconds.

     

    Riley Carswell finishes with a time of 1 Hour, 2 minutes and 45 seconds.

     

    I have no words to express my pain. Ole Einar posts the worst fourth lap yet and will need a miracle to not to finish last.

     

    Teddy Smith has a decent performance on the third. On par the best paces here, and arrives to the third checkpoint with the second best time today but one minute above what he did yesterday. He can do better.

     

    Cunningham continues to push the pace despite his misses and finishes the second lap at 21:39, 23 seconds better than Teddy Smith for first.

    Porter Rose doesn't want Cunningham to take too much of an advantage and starts strong, finishing the first lap in 9 minutes and 48 seconds.

    MM Flex!

     

    Ole Einar 4th Shooting: ⚫⚫⚪⚪⚪

    Teddy Smith 3rd Shooting: ⚪⚫⚪⚪⚫

    Marcus Cunningham 2nd Shooting: ⚫⚫⚪⚪⚫

    Porter Rose 1st Shooting: ⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫

     

    The one who lead all human competitors yesterday joins the race.

     

    Einar has his best shooting performance today, although that's not saying much. He's missed a total of 11 targets today. 45% accuracy. Impossible to win like that.

     

    Smith is on the same route, having missed 8 already. Tough times for the 4th qualified.

     

    Cunningham misses three. Maybe he could use a bit more of concentration and pause in those shots.

     

    Porter does porter things... He misses all and rapidly directs towards the penalty circuit.

    Einar is finally done with this nightmare. He finishes with best pace in the last lap yet, but that's not enough to compensate from his misses from the 50 meters.

     

    Ole Einar Bjorndalen finishes with a time of 1 Hour, 5 minutes and 14 seconds.

     

    Smith puts in the best pace in the 4th lap yet and gets the the last checkpoint leading all participants. let's see if he can up there after the next lap!

     

    Marcus, however, is threatening that position, since he gets to the third checkpoint in just 33 minutes and 32 seconds. Second best got there in 34:57, and it was Dropped Pass.

     

    Porter Rose takes his penalty laps and tries to come back from them. Gets to the 8th km with the third best time.

     

    Meanwhile MM is the third consecutive skier to drop below 10 minutes in the first 4 kms. 9:50 for him

    Marcus Cunningham 3rd Shooting: ⚪⚫⚫⚫⚫

    Porter Rose 2nd Shooting: ⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪

    MM Flex 1st Shooting: ⚫⚫⚫⚪⚫

     

    Fan favourite for the robot kin is on the snow and so are all our participants.

     

    Smith can only get two right, but he had a slight advantage at before the shooting. Will he be able to hold into his temporary first place?

     

    Cunningham is having a very bad day from the 50 meters, having missed 11 of 15 shots already. That's going to have a toll on his legs later on!

     

    Rose shows shy he's regarded as one of the best standing shooters out there and pulls of a perfect!

     

    Flex, dude, that's a bummer. He gets to add 4 penalty laps to his total.

    Well Teddy does indeed hold into it! He finishes the race just 8 seconds worse than he did yesterday, but that's enough to register the best time today so far.

     

    Teddy Smith finishes with a time of 1 Hour, 1 minutes and 39 seconds.

     

    Marcus Cunningham is all legs, no eye, but that's enough for him to get to the last checkpoint with almost two minutes over Teddy Smith. 46:09 is the third best register at the 4th checkpoint during all the competition, only behind MM Flex and Aimbot marks from yesterday by a few seconds. Could this be a sub-hour race?

     

    Porter Rose with 5 hits and the legs of a titan! He records an insane pace of 2:41 in the third lap, best ever, and arrives at the third checkpoint leading all participants.

     

    Flex doesn't want to leave the race yet despite missing 4 and tries to come back. And he does, in a sense. he is 3rd at the second checkpoint.

     

    Oh my god! Aimbot beats Cunningham best time from yesterday in the first lap by one second! 9:25 for the mechanical invention as he leads all participants through checkpoint 1.

    MM Flex 2nd Shooting: ⚫⚫⚫⚪⚫

    Speedprone Aimbot 1st Shooting: ⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪

     

    ok that's not good Cunningham! 9 misses in his last 10 shots, 16 misses overall for a 20% accuracy.

     

    Porter Rose was leading the race so far but that's a bad showing, let's hope he doesn't fall too much.

     

    Flex is supposed to be a 60% shooter here, but luck is not in his favor today. This might cost him the race.

     

    Speedprone showing his prone speed. Perfect for the bot from the distance and ready to continue imposing himself.

    Nothing can stop Cunningham! It doesn't matter 10 or 16 penalty laps when you have the best legs in the tournament. He finishes strong and reaches the finish line in just 59 minutes and 32 seconds! Third best time we've ever seen just behind Flex and Speedbot times from yesterday. Will they be able to replicate?

     

    Marcus Cunningham finishes with a time of 59 minutes and 32 seconds.

     

    Porter takes his penalties but continues to lead the race at the last checkpoint by only 8 seconds. I wonder if he'll be able to keep the distance with Cunningham, given that marcus missed all his shots at the last shooting and Porter is a great standing shooter.

     

    Flex is being hurt by so many misses. He is trying to remain competitive by skiing hard, but it's tough when you miss so much. He arrives to the third checkpoint with the 5th best time.

     

    Aimbot continues to impress. He destroys Cunningham's lead at the second checkpoint. Marcus was leading with 21 minutes and 39 seconds, but Aimbot destroys that with just 20 minutes and 44 seconds needed. He is looking to break the race here.

    Porter Rose 4th Shooting: ⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪

    MM Flex 3rd Shooting: ⚪⚫⚪⚫⚪

    Speedprone Aimbot 2nd Shooting: ⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫

     

    Porter Rose ladies and gentlemen! He races through his shots with speed and precision and heads towards his last lap, where he smashes km after km to finish with an insane last lap! remember that he posted the best last lap yesterday and that granted him the qualification. Well, he does just that today, with a 2:50 pace! the difference? He took 3 fewer minutes to get to this lap than yesterday! Porter Rose finishes the race in just 57 minutes and 21 seconds!

     

    MM makes a good lap at 3:10 despite the misses, best in fourth lap today, and takes the 4th position heading into the last lap. he'll need a very good performance to crack into the podium.

     

    Aimbot misses everything as he is not designed to shot from a standing position. That makes him lose all his leverage and arrives at the third checkpoint conceding the lead to Porter by 25 seconds.
