Johannes Boe stated, that the birth of a child is his top priority. So, he is going to miss all January events (Oberhof, Puhpolding and Pokjuka).
«I will be at home before birth, and I still there after it. I want, to be sure - Heda and my child is ok, and I want, Heda and child feel my presence and care.
This winter, World Championship - is a top priority for me. If it will be works and be a success, maybe I copy of the strategy to training and get ready for the Olympic Games 2022.»
If Johannes really missing all January events, who will be a leader of the World Cup? Or not?
Last year Johannes was ahead 2nd Loginov by 380 points. Also, Boe lost 60 points for pursuit in Soldier Hollow, really gap is 440 points. January events include 6 personal races. 6*60 points = 360. If Johannes will so good, as last year, he can win the World Cup.
