The TV broadcaster ZDF defended the biathlon reporter Anja Fröhlich against criticism from the network after the mass start competition at the World Cup in Antholz.

“We ask you to refrain from offensive and, above all, sexist comments. They have no place here, ”wrote the TV station on Saturday, referring to its netiquette.

The 43-year-old ZDF editor Fröhlich worked as a live reporter for the biathlon for the second time – during the TV broadcast together with Herbert Fritzenwenger there was also unobjective criticism of the commentator. “Hello dear biathlon fans!” Wrote the TV broadcaster Twitter. “Thank you for all of your feedback, we value your opinion and constructive criticism very much”, it was said before the broadcaster forbade insulting its editor.

The biathlon race in the Südtirol-Arena was won by the French Julia Simon, the best German ski hunter over the 12.5 kilometers was Franziska Preuss in fourth. During the broadcast, some Twitter users criticized Anja Fröhlich’s expertise and criticized the quality of the microphone, sometimes with hearty words.

But there was also praise and encouragement from the Twitter community for the reporter.
