Where is Schwaiger?
Julia Schwaiger is currently in ninth place at the finish. If it stays that way, it would be a fantastic result for the Austrian!
Elvira Öberg at the finish
Elvira Öberg cannot push her sister from seventh place and is currently tenth.
With the start number 77 Vanessa Hinz is now on the trail. The DSV fans can look forward to the first shooting – it hits all the targets.
Innerhofer at the first shooting
Katharina Innerhofer started quite late and comes to the first shooting. A mistake is their result.
Eckhoff despite mistakes in front
Wow! Tiril Eckhoff is 9.3 seconds ahead at the finish, although she made a shooting error. The Norwegian is a real running wonder!
Wierer in the finish – new leaders!
And again there is a new leader! It is Dorothea Wierer from Italy, who is 3.3 seconds ahead.
Preuss for the time being fourth
Unfortunately, that won’t be a top result either: Franziska Preuss crosses the finish line with a shooting error. She is currently fourth.
Hauser leading the way!
What an achievement! Lisa Theresa Hauser is on target and is leading! 6.8 seconds is currently their lead.
Hauser leads after seven kilometers!

Hauser is in the flow!
Lisa Theresa Hauser is in great shape! She also gets away with no penalty loop in the second shooting! In the meantime, Denis Herrmann has reached the finish line, who is now moving up to third place. With three mistakes it won’t be a good result.
Dzinara Alimbekava at the finish
Dzinara Alimbekava finishes the race 10.4 seconds behind Julia Schwaiger – the Austrian stays in front. But that will probably change soon …
Öberg does it better in the second shooting

The new tours are taking place here in quick succession! Justine Braisaz-Bouchet stays clean and has a lead of 16.4 seconds after the standing position!

Alimbekava starts running
Dzinara Alimbekava also starts quite early and is on the way now.
The calm before the storm
The first few minutes of a sprint race are always pretty quiet: until some athletes have completed the first shooting, the race is rather less exciting. But the short wait is worth it!
The knob started
The Norwegian Karoline Offigstad Knotten, currently eleventh in the sprint classification, is now on the track. We are slowly looking forward to the first shooting …
Schwaiger first in front
Julia Schwaiger has a lead of six seconds in the first intermediate result.
Hammerschmidt at the first time measurement
Hammerschmidt sets the first time at 0.8km with 2:09. We’ll see how much that will be worth in comparison.
Schwaiger on the trail
Julia Schwaiger from Austria also started. A long climb awaits the athletes shortly after the start. There you can of course lose a few seconds …
The race is on!
Maren Hammerschmidt is on the track and the sprint is on!
It’s starting soon!
The first starter is the German Maren Hammerschmidt. In a few moments the race can begin! The athletes’ starting phase should last until 3:20 pm.
The hard facts
The women have to complete three laps of 2.5km each today. Shots are taken twice; a miss leads directly to a penalty loop. All athletes start one after the other with short intervals.
A total of 22 positive corona cases were recorded at the World Cup in Oberhof. Athletes weren’t there yet. So today 101 biathlon women can start.
Cloudy and cold
The athletes will find minus three degrees and a thick blanket of clouds in Oberhof today. The place in Thuringia is by the way at 815 meters above sea level.
The sprints so far – (not) a surprise bag?
Five sprint competitions have been held so far this winter. There were three different winners: Hanna Öberg won the first two editions, then Dzinara Alimbekava was allowed to cheer. Most recently, Tiril Eckhoff took two wins. Marte Olsbu Røiseland leads in the sprint classification.
Look at the ranking
Marte Olsbu Røiseland is currently leading in the World Cup ahead of Tiril Eckhoff and Hanna Öberg. Franziska Preuß is currently seventh, Denise Herrmann is eleventh. Lisa Theresa Hauser from Austria (8th place) has also performed well this winter so far. Last weekend, she took third place in the pursuit.
The biathlon world cup was hosted in Oberhof last week. The results of the German athletes were anything but glorious: A 14th and an 18th place in the individual races were the best results – too little for the demands of Preuss, Herrmann and Co. Can you do better today? The DSV men presented yesterday and were able to look forward to three starters among the best eleven (including the podium for Arnd Peiffer).
A wintry hello to all friends of winter sports for the 7.5km sprint of the biathlon women in Oberhof! The race starts at 2:30 p.m. – enjoy reading along!
