18.01.2024 - Who will win the women's singles?
Several biathletes have a chance of winning the women’s race at the Südtirol Arena. The current overall World Cup leader, Ingrid Landmark Tandrevold from Norway (666 points), is only marginally ahead of France's Justine Braisaz-Bouchet (657) and the "Azzurra" Lisa Vittozzi (606). Elvira Öberg in the blue bib and DSV ace Franziska Preuss also have their sights set on the podium.

Tandrevold is currently the strongest woman on the biathlon circuit. The 27-year-old Scandinavian already has ten podium places (four gold) to her credit this winter. She recently excelled in Ruhpolding, finishing first in the sprint and silver in the pursuit. Braisaz-Bouchet from France, who is the same age, has reached the podium nine times with six victories. Lisa Vittozzi is also on top form. The 28-year-old from Sappada is coming off a victory in the pursuit in Ruhpolding. She also claimed 3rd place in the sprint in Upper Bavaria. Vittozzi also won the only individual race in Östersund and will therefore start with the red bib.

South Tyrolean biathlon fans, on the other hand, are pinning their hopes on Dorothea Wierer. After taking a month off (her last start was in Lenzerheide in mid-December), the 33-year-old from Rasen will be returning to the biathlon circuit at her home competition in Antholz. This year, Wierer has only managed one podium finish, at the opening event in Östersund with the mixed relay (3rd place). Now Wierer is looking to return to winning form at her home track in the Südtirol Arena. In addition to Vittozzi and Wierer, local hero Rebecca Passler, Samuela Comola, Michela Carrara and first-timer Sara Scattolo also feature in the women's line-up.
