*Men, 10km Sprint: Martin Fourcade, 2nd
After some days of rest after World Championships, World Cup came back in Oslo, Norway. With 2 penalties and very good feelings on skis, I finish second just one-tenth behind Norway’s Boe who shooting clean. It’s always irritating to end so close of the victory, it’s the third time this season! But I’m happy because there are still seven races this season and I count 147 points in advance on Emil Svendsen.

*Ladies, 10km Pursuit, Marie Dorin-Habert, 2nd
Fourth of the Sprint on Friday, Marie Dorin-Habert has taken revenge during the Pursuit. She ends second with two penalties behind Tora Berger and ahead of Anastasia Kuzmina. The biathlete from Team Rossignol signs her sixth career podium, the second in individual this winter after her third place in Pokljuka in the Pursuit too. "I am a very, very... lucky woman and I am very happy today. It is nice to be up here because I am not a star and not on the podium very often."
