The Italian stage of the World Cup has ended: from the 21st to the 24th of January the 240 best athletes in the world, representing 25 countries, gathered in the Alto Adige Arena in Antholz.

There were also the athletes of the Italian National team, who can count on the performances of the cal.22 ammunitions of the Fiocchi Biathlon line: Exacta Winter, Official Winter, and TT Winter.

The main satisfactions for Italy came from shooting: thanks to the excellent performances at the shooting range, indeed, Dorothea Wierer and Lukas Hofer conquered two 4th placings in the individual races, climbing the leaderboard and reaching the 4th and 10th position respectively.

Good news also from relay races, where the Italian athletes did good performances on skis and excellent performances with the rifle: the male quartet, which includes Dominik Windisch,  Thomas Bormolini, Tommaso Giacomel, Didier Bionaz, conquered the 5th position; women’s team, with Lisa Vittozzi, Federica San Filippo, Michela Carrara, and Dorothea Wierer reached the 4th position.

“We are very happy for the Italian team’s growth, in particular for their performances at the shooting range with our ammunitions - claimed President Stefano Fiocchi after the race - The biathlon season is still long: we are sure that they will give us many more satisfactions”.

Next stage: Pokljuka in Slovenia, where the World Championships will be held from the 9th to the 21st of February.
