most returning dopers in endurance sports show similar tendencies....



lol what? She absolutely crushes the field two weekends in a row now, probably steeped in training waiting to peak for worlds and still beating the rest with half a minute over 10k. What sport are you watching? There’s one Swede that seems able to follow though, young girl, might hopefully contend in a couple of years.

it sound like you watching something that is taking place in your own brain as opposed to what everyone else....

if 9 seconds over ebba was 'absolutely crushing' or a dozen seconds or so a day before, than you are a little, or majorly confused....

Yeah I already mentioned Ebba as an exemption, she didn’t use to compete in world tour so hard to say how they matched before tha ban. Not sure how that’s a difficult concept...

you are still very confused. i am not sure how a gap of mere seconds not just to ebba (take a look at the official fis results, sparky) is 'absolutely crushing'. not a difficult concept. unless one is invested in distorted personal time perception.

So 3/3 wins so far, half a minute, 9sec (15 to Kalla) in the 10k’s and over a minute in the 15k. I don’t know how you define domination but this certainly looks like it to me. Funny you insinuate that she’s now clean(er) after her ban and has declined performance wise lol laughable bias at display.

It's of course hard to compare as the courses and the order of events are different, but I tried to compare anyway. The first 10 km F event was quite far in 2015/16 season, so I compared also to doubled times for 5 km F. Comparing the margins not only to the 2nd, but to everyone, it looks pretty clear that Johaug is roughly as dominant now as she was in 2015/16.

Wow, good work on the graphs, interesting. It seems clearly apparent that she is as dominant as ever, but when you have an agenda and a strong hatred for Norwegian skiers facts don’t matter. You see what you want to see.
