Riders in this news : Martin FOURCADE
Martin Fourcade became on Sunday triple world champion in Ruhpolding! After its gold medals in sprint and in pursuit, he wins the Mass Start. He had known until the end to this title even if he has made two mistakes in the shooting. He followed at first the rhythm imposed by Andreas Birnbacher who counted 0 fault before the last tour but who failed on the last shooting then resisted to the attacks of the Swede Björn Ferry at the end of race. He equals the record of Ole Einar Bjoerndalen and Raphaël Poirée, three gold medals in individual, at only 23 years.
“I was unnerved against me after the individual race and the two relays. I didn’t’ show what I could do and I didn’t like the manner. I don’t return the gold to Alexis, Jean-Guillaume and Simon today but I give it to all the rest of the team and to the public. There are marvellous feelings, it’s incredible! I don’t fight to enter in a record book or to become a legend but whait I make during this World Championships, it’s huge. I’m happy, it’s only pleasure, it’s because of the word of the French Team. Now, I will focused on the finals in Kanty-Mansiysk and after on Sochi”
The French biathlete leaves these World championships with four medals: the gold in sprint, pursuit and mass start, the silver during the relay. Team Rossignol is very proud of Martin's performance.
