It's a shame really, but I still think that a team consisting of Puskarčíková (1), Soukalová (2), Charvátová (3) and Vítková (4) should be able to finish in the top 3. The problem yesterday was not only Charvátová's shooting but also Jislova's terrible first round, always leaving it up to Soukalová to close down the 1 minute the Czechs are after. With Puskarčíková on the first leg, the Czechs are, as a rule of thumb, at worst "only" 20 seconds back at the first exchange.Libertine Seguros said:Charvatová is, I'm afraid, Gössner-like in relays. She's almost a guaranteed penalty in standing, no matter how well she does in the individual races, put her in stand in a relay and she melts down. She shot 1 penalty loop in Hochfilzen, 2 in Ruhpolding and Antholz, 1 in Presque Isle and now 3 in Holmenkollen. It's the biggest problem for the Czech relay, because Landová's had a bad season and they don't really have anybody doing well enough to offer an appreciable advantage over Charvatová even despite that. Jislová might become that once Puskarčíková is healthy again, but the season will be over by then and there's no relay in Khanty.
