Biathlon / Ruhpolding: Martin Fourcade, World Champion of Sprint! Bergman, 3e

Riders in this news :  Martin FOURCADE


What a beautiful day for Martin Fourcade! After the underachievement during the mixed relay, the biathlete of Team Rossignol assured his leader place in the sprint this Saturday. Silver medallist of the psrint in 2011 Khanty-Mansiyk World Championships, Martin Fourcade realizes the best time in ski and becomes World Champion with two mistakes in shooting. Emil Svendsen, his principal opponent counted also two penalties. At 23 years old, Martin signs his tenth victory and his second title of World Champion after that won during the pursuit in 2011. He also marks precious points compared with Svendsen in the race for the small globe of the sprint and the big globe of the overall ranking.

Carl-Johan Bergman from Team Rossignol completes this beautiful podium. With no fault in shooting, he would have been able to worry both leaders but he did not hold the rhythm at the end of the race. This bronze medal is a beautiful performance for the Swede who signed two victories in sprint this season in Ostersund and Hochfilzen.

We congratulate our two athletes and we wish them good luck for the pursuit on Sunday!

Note the beautiful 5th place of  Marie-Laure Brunet (Rossignol) in the Sprint !
