Time for the ‘Discipline of Queens’! On the final day of the competition, on 27 January 2019, the World Cup awaits with two special delicacies. The best of the best compete in a discipline in which faultless shooting combined with a steady track performance are the keys to success.
On the final World Cup day the best of the women will compete in the mass start. This discipline promises a lively race, spontaneous turns and lots of adrenaline. This is how it was in 2018 too: For a long time, it seemed that Dorothea Wierer from the southern Tyrol would win the competition. She hit the targets at breakneck speed and set a good pace on the trail.

But then, on the final shooting round, the disillusionment came. She took aim in standing position twice in a row.

This year, the ladies will help make sure your biathlon hearts beat faster once again.
