Straight after the women, the men run the pursuit on the third day of the World Cup. Here again, it is questionable whether the result of the sprint will be confirmed here or whether an athlete with a low ranking can make her way to the top.
In the 2018 World Cup, Johannes Thingnes Bø brought his strong performance from the sprint competition. On the shooting range he hit all targets in a flash, while on the trail he extended his lead over Frenchman Martin Fourcade yet further. The Russian Anton Shipulin came in third place. Once again, it can be seen that for the pursuit, marksmanship and speed are of equal importance.
In the last World Cup, the host country’s biathletes were unable to score. Dominik Windisch and Lukas Hofer both slipped up in the shooting and finished up in 17th and 36th places. So you can look forward this year to an exciting championship and cheer the biathletes on from the spectator areas to give them the motivation and support they need!
