And two for French biathlon! After Emilien Jacquelin, crowned during the pursuit three days earlier, the Frenchman Martin Fourcade won, Wednesday, February 19 in Anterselva (Italy), an 11th world title by dominating the Individual of the Biathlon Worlds. He thus equalized the gold medal record on the individual level of the Norwegian Ole-Einar Bjoerndalen.

The five-time Olympic champion took the opportunity to win the small crystal globe of the specialty, the 25th of his career, and remains more than ever at the top of the general classification of the World Cup. It is his 82nd victory on the circuit, the 6th of the season, and his 2nd podium at these World Championships after the bronze won in the sprint on Saturday.
