Norwegian biathlete Tiril Eckhoff also triumphed in the third individual race in Oberhof, Germany.
After victories in the sprint and fighter in the 5th round of the World Cup, she added laurels on Thursday in the speed races of the 6th round of the series, when she reached a time of 22: 33.8 min with one penalty round.
Italian Dorothea Wierer finished second and Lisa Theresa Hauser from Austria was third. Of the three Slovak national teams, junior Júlia Machyniaková finished best in 83rd place.
Eckhoff started with the number 41 and showed an excellent running performance from the beginning, when only the German Denise Herrmann came to the first shot faster than her, but she lost her good position on the shooting range.
On the contrary, the Norwegian racer showed a quick and flawless shot and got to the front. She also led in other split times on the second lap. Although she missed one target on the stand and ran the penalty round with a deficit of 3.6 seconds to pure Wierer, in the last round she erased the loss without any problems and came to the finish with a lead of 9.3 seconds over the Italian opponent.
The third place was also won by the flawless Hauser, who finished on the bronze podium in last week’s sprint and in the fighter.
Sisters Paulín and Ivona Fialková, who interrupted the season, did not start in Oberhof this week, as they are still suffering from health problems caused by overcoming the Covid-19 disease in November. Aneta Smerčiaková, Henrieta Horvátová and Júlia Machyniaková jumped into the race.
The last named was highest, who showed clean shooting on both items, but with a slower run it was only enough for 83rd place with a big loss of 3: 36.1 min. Horvátová finished one place worse, passing one target on the stand. Smerčiaková had a balance of 1 + 2 and took 94th place.
