Johannes Thingnes Boe played in 17 World Cup matches this season, winning 15 times after he was also the best in pursuit in Oslo. Denise Herrmann-Wick won the sprint biathlon in Norway.

At 15:00, the women’s sprint race started, which was postponed yesterday due to fog. Polona and Živa Klemenčič and Anamarija Lampič perform.

Polona Klemenčič she missed lying down and standing once and, with a gap of a good minute, intervened in the fight for her daughter, who in the end escaped her by six seconds.

The last sprint in the inaugural biathlon season crashed Anamarija Lampič, who already missed twice while lying down, and four more times while standing. Six penalty laps were too many for her to catch any points for the World Cup in the discipline where she was already fifth twice.

Hello Klemenčič she knocked down all five targets while lying down, and missed twice while standing.

JTB to 15th World Cup victory

The 29-year-old Norwegian ace, who won all the sprints of the winter, and then celebrated six times in seven pursuits, missed once on the shooting range and overtook the Frenchman Quentin Fillon Maillet by a good 32 seconds, who advanced from seventh to second place after a perfect shooting performance. Third was Sturla Holm Laegreid. The Norwegian was third in the sprint, but in the pursuit he was unsuccessful once at the last shooting stop.

With a big lead before the last shot, he put down his rifle, put his finger on his lips to signal to the audience to be quiet, then took a shot, hit the 20th target and headed for another victory. With the move, he also made Norwegian King Harald V., who watched the match at Holmenkollen, smile. Boe went into the final lap with a minute lead, so he also had time to greet the enthusiastic fans. The best biathlete of recent years won 15 World Cup matches this winter, and he also celebrated in three of the four World Championship trials. In total, he registered 73 victories in the biggest matches.

Fak and Vidmar on the Sunday pursuit

A good performance was achieved by Jakov Fak, who had to go to the penalty circle once, but in the end he advanced from 17th place to 13th and confirmed his performance in Sunday’s pursuit. Toni Vidmar was less accurate, who achieved a career result in the sprint with 15th place. This time, after the first shooting performance, he had to go to the penalty circle twice, in the continuation he left two more targets uncovered, but he ran well in the last round and took 25th place.

On Sunday, for the first time in his career, Vidmar will compete in a match with a group start. The competition features 25 of the best competitors from the World Cup and another five who were the best at the current World Cup station, which is why the competition also took on the nickname Formula 1 Biathlon.
