The Biathlon World Cup in Oberhof begins on Wednesday, with a mixed relay.

The Swedish team is selected and did not offer any major surprises.

The same team as at last year's Olympics gets the chance again.

Hanna Öberg and Elvira Öberg perform together with Sebastian Samuelsson and Martin Ponsiluoma.

It is Hanna Öberg who gets the task of starting the relay.

- Now it's been a while since I drove a first stage, the last time was at the Olympics.

But earlier in my career I have run a number of first legs, especially in women's relays.

I'm really comfortable with any distance and I think it will be very exciting to drive first right here, she says.

"I think we have very good chances"

She is followed by Elvira Öberg, then Ponsiluoma and Samuelsson are responsible for the finish.

Ponsiluoma is looking forward to opening the championships with a relay.

- I think it's really fun to run a relay, starting the WC with a relay is always good, it's a good rep no matter how it goes.

I think we have very good chances and yes, the relay is always a highlight of the championships, he says.
