The fifth Biathlon World Cup has enriched our wall with another bronze medal, conquered once again by Dorothea Wierer, who climbed the third step of the podium in the Sprint race.

Instead, the top of the general ranking has been conquered by Tiril Eckhoff from Norway, the absolute protagonist of the German stage. Now she has 41 points more than the Italian athlete.

“In this moment Eckhoff is really in goof form - claimed Wierer, who uses the .22 Biathlon line by Fiocchi Munizioni, like the rest of the Italian national team - I must keep concentrated, recover energy and get ready to face the next challenge with confidence. In biathlon, everything can change at any time”.

The fight for the crystal globe remains wide open and looks to do so till the end of the season; there are still 4 stages of the World Cup, in addition to the Antholz World Championships.

The international spotlight is now moving to Pokljuka (SLO), where the next competition will take place from 23 to 26 January.
