French biathletes won Saturday’s men’s World Cup relay in Anterselve, Italy.
Antonin Guigonnat, Quentin Fillon Maillet, Simon Desthiex and Emilien Jacuelin defeated Norwegians by 0.8 seconds. Russia was third with a gap of 50.8 seconds.
Slovaks composed of Michal Šima, Tomáš Hasilla, Šimon Bartko and Matej Baloga took 12th place and improved this season’s maximum by one place, when they finished 13th in Oberhof on 15 January.
Šima was the first to run to the track and was sixteenth before the bed, he managed the introductory item with one recharge. The competitors held together, Shima was fourteen, on the stand he had a chance to move, but he had to use two spare bullets.
Nevertheless, he maintained his position and handed the baton to Hasill with a deficit of 45 seconds. He started well, was 100% on the bed and moved to eleventh place.
Although he dropped one rung, the stand went relatively well, he missed only the last target and had to recharge. In the run, his loss increased to 1:33 minutes, but Bartka let him go on the track in twelfth place.
Bartko also followed up on good performances at the shooting range and “equipped” the first item in 28 seconds. Bartko kept a good pace in the running part as well and shifted and ran eleventh on the stand.
He missed the first two targets and did not hit the first repair, but in the end he managed it without a penalty round. He managed the last lap excellently and handed over the baton just behind the tenth Canadian. Finishman Baloga managed the bed with one repair and still left the stadium eleventh.
Although he lost pace in the run, he managed the stand with a single recharge and in the end he fought for the top ten, but in the end he was overtaken by the Swiss and Baloga finished twelfth.
