Riders in this news : Selina GASPARIN
Despite the bad weather -windy and snowy- Switzerland’s Selina Gasparin claimed in Hochfilzen’s Sprint the first World Cup victory of her career. It’s also the first victory for Switzerland in biathlon! The skier from Rossignol Team ended first with one penalty ahead of Veronika Vitkova and Irina Starykh.
"It was just a normal day out there, skiing and shooting...I had a miss in the standing and then never thought about the podium. I was thinking it would not be a good position...It was a big surprise: I have always been always dreaming about a podium, maybe second or third, but I never thought about a victory. Now I am really surprised to be the winner of today's race. I thought it would be cool to have a woman take the first victory. It is an honor to be the First world Cup winner; it is a really big day for Switzerland."
