Rossignol is the unique winner of the three biathlon men World Cup in Östersund this week.
Martin Fourcade took the yellow bib after the first race and reinforced its position during the week with the victory of the 20 km individual just in front of Michal Slesingr (Rossignol team), and with the victory of the pursuit. Swedish Carl Johan Bergman has staked his claim on its lands at the sprint event.
A first place for the biathlete Martin Fourcade!
Martin Fourcade made a sensational entry into the field by winning the 20km individual in Östersund. He won ahead Slesingr Michal and Simon Schempp at the IBU World Cup Biathlon. Impressive precision and speed, he was far ahead his two challengers and was even credited with a shooting at 19/20 points. It opens a fine perspective for the new season coming. The Czech Michal Slesingr just take a nice second place, well behind the rocket Fourcade, at 1min54 behind. He rides for the seventh time in his career on a World Cup podium.
The next round, the 10 km sprint, will be held Friday, also in Sweden.
