Does it exists in biathlon a sort of ethical code that prevents the athlete to leave a race even if the final results is very compromised?
In the today Mass Start (16 gen 2016 in Ridnaun-Val Ridanna) Bjorndalen has 2+3+2+3 error for the 4 sessions. I do not think that the points raised in today's race from Bjornadalen can be important for general or specialty rankings so I do not understand why he is not leave after the 2nd / 3rd lap.
It is not a good show to view the most important biathlete of ever to run alone in the last position
I was wondering if withdraw during the race was seen as a lack of respect for the public or for other competitors
