    A Russian fails a drugs test. I can't say that I'm surprised.

    Was in Europe last time, does noone in North America want another turn?

    How exciting was the biathlon, right down to the photo finish. Never heard of any of them but was rooting for the French guy. That's the magic of the Olympics, end up engrossed in some pretty random stuff that I'd never watch otherwise.

    We just did it in 2010. Maybe New Zealand should have a shot except it'd be in our summer.

    I love watching biathlon mainly as a result of being introduced by a friend some years ago to the great Norwegian biathlete, Ole Einar Bjorndalen. He is now 44 years of age but four years ago in Sochi won two medals.

    I love the biathlon, and the amazing thing was that was Fourcade's second such finish. He finished on the wrong side of the last one in Sochi. Didn't want him to win as he has been the standout performer in men's biathlon for years now and I like to see the golds get shared around!

    Quick update - The above statement was premature (don't trust the BBC ). Elise Christie is undergoing a fitness test at around 2am UK to determine whether she will compete again. Apparently she is optimistic.
