    Yes, as you say Gary the fog and mist made the shooting most difficult and sometimes the camera's could not even pick out see the competitor.

    Let's hope for better conditions today! :)

    Just watched the men,s race ,are the sight,s higher these day,s ? and why do they adjust the sights for wind instead of aiming off?

    some do have their sights higher allows a more natural head position

    they will aim off in varying winds but when its more consistent they adjust the sighs

    having never shot with diopters sights I would guess its easier to align all the circles together rather than aiming off

    Hopefully Dasha can have her second win off the weekend
