Biathlon World Cup in Liveticker: So the men's single race (20km)
Who grabs Johannes Thingnes Bø? The Norwegian is the big favorite in the Biathlon Men's World Championship single race over 20 kilometers. For Germany, Arnd Peiffer is among the start. The competition in the live ticker.
3/13/19 3:08 PM The role of the big favorite goes back to the Norwegian Johannes Thinges Bø, who already has two gold and one silver medal and does not leave the impression that he is already finished, especially since he is in the pursuit after five shooting mistakes the gold medal to the Ukrainian Dmytro Pidrutschnyj had to leave. Bø is starting from grid position 53 today. The Russian Alexander Loginov, who is in second place in the World Cup standings, wears the 33 and the third Quentin Fillon Maillet starts from the 59. One should, among others, for example, Lars-Helge Birkeland, Ondrej Moravec or veteran Martin Fourcade keep an eye on. 3/13/19 3:03 PM The field today includes 103 starters, including the four German representatives Arnd Peiffer (car number 24), Erik Lesser (55), Benedikt Doll (35) and Roman Rees (72), to which national coach Mark Kirchner has set. And Peiffer expects a tough race today, because the track is quite demanding and then you have to "try to get through the shooting range well," said the man from Clausthal-Zellerfeld. Also colleague Lesser expects on fresh snow "a hard piece of work". Seemingly unconcerned, Roman Rees goes into his race and can imagine shooting clean. 3/13/19 2:45 PM Submitted to be the award ceremony of the women.
