I mean, I know that feeling. Its never nice to get "burned" by investing too much into an athlete just to get disappointed. Just wanted to put another perspective here. Not saying that I know any more than anyone else here though.I guess it's just that in the year when everyone said we have to look out for athletes suddenly improving over the offseason due to a lack of testing, an athlete from a country with one of the worst doping records, does exactly that.
I'm probably among the people here hoping most that Hauser is clean since she is currently doing wonders to the perception of Biathlon in Austria, it's just that I've lived through the same bullsh*t way too many times in my life to remain optimistic.
