On the camp of the Norwegian athletes- Today we would not only look at biathlon. We want you to dedicate ourselves one of the most successful cross-country skier any times. Marit Bjoergen, a woman with remarkable successes. The many victories and medals are not surprising, but more on that later. Now the question arises what has Marit Bjoergen to do with biathlon.
Right, as seen nothing, but her Norwegian colleague Tiril Eckhoff is well known to us. The young lady may well call in the same breath with Marit Bjoergen.
But what the two athletes have in common?
The answer sounds simple and though it is extremely complex: V02max
On the Internet and in specialist literature you find precise definitions and treatises. Simplifies - the V02max value represents the maximal oxygen uptake and describes the endurance of an athlete. One speaks here of a suitable parameter in sports science to control the training of the athletes. The V02max can be formulated depending on weight and size. So it is possible to formulate a standard value, which can help to compare the health between athletes.
At this point, back to Marit Bjoergen - with 72 (ml / min / kg) - she belongs to the "perseverance powerful women in the world" and precisely this Tiril Eckhoff, the Norwegian biathlete has recently cracked this value.
One certainly impressive value of Tiril Eckhoff. These values allow the conclusions on her good preparation in the summer. But in contrast to the cross-country skiers, located Tiril place in biathlon again and there it is well known, the "Duo" from running and shooting creates the successes. It will be interesting.
