The 29-year-old remained 5:28.0 minutes behind the victorious Dorothea Wierer in 46th without World Cup points. Lisa Vittozzi lined up behind her Italian compatriot. Like Wierer, the 28-year-old remained flawless in her four shooting stages, was 25.5 seconds behind after the 15-kilometer distance and secured the individual World Cup ahead of Julia Simon. The French World Cup leader finished fourth (+1:49.5) with two penalties after a very strong mileage. Third place went to Germany’s Denise Hermann-Wick (1/+1:38.8).

Zdouc again best Austrian

Dunja Zdouc (0/+3:25.6) and Tamara Steiner (1/+3:34.6) finished 18th and 21st. Steiner missed the last of his 20 shots while standing and thus lost the realistic chance of a top ten place. Like Zdouc, who was the best Austrian in the World Championships about three weeks ago, she made up for deficits on the cross-country ski run at the shooting range to a certain extent.

There were also World Cup points in the ÖSV team for Anna Juppe as 36th (3/5:01.3). Anna Gandler (4/+6:08.0) was only 59th.

Simon Eder took ninth place

Simon Eder showed a strong performance in the men’s singles: The ÖSV veteran came in ninth after 20 kilometers and one missed shot. At the finish, the 40-year-old was almost two and a half minutes behind winner Benedikt Doll. Eder managed his third top ten place in this World Cup season (without relay competitions). The second best Austrian was David Komatz with two penalties on the shooting range in 27th (+4:27.8). Dominic Unterweger was 49th (+5:51.7/3), Harald Lemmerer 53rd (+6:21.3/3).

Doll took advantage of the absence of the top athletes with corona disease around Norway’s top stars Johannes Thingnes Bö, Sturla Holm Laegreid, Tarjei Bö and Sweden’s mass start world champion Sebastian Samuelsson with a flawless race to his fourth World Cup victory. The 22-year-old Italian Tommaso Giacomel finished second ahead of Vetle Sjaastad Christiansen, the Norwegian thus securing the discipline ball.
