Day two of the 2019 World Cup is devoted wholly to the men’s sprint. Be ready at 2.30pm for a lively competition. The shooting will be from lying and from standing... and full of hazards.
The last season demonstrated how thrilling the sprint discipline can be. Johannes Thingnes Bø of Norway and Martin Fourcade of France provided a thrilling duel for the sprint and for the overall ranking. Ultimately, despite a miss in the shooting, the Norwegian triumphed in the Antholz competition.
The best Italian biathlete of the 2018 World Cup was Antholz native Dominik Windisch. He demonstrated perfectly how biathletes battle through from the very back to the front. In difficult wind conditions he missed four targets in the first round of shooting and dropped to 99th place. In later stages, however, he made up for this brilliantly, finishing in 17th place. And soon we’ll see who the fastest biathlete in the 2019 World Cup will be.
