In Ruhpolding, during the 15km individual, Marie-Laure Brunet (Rossignol) finishes second! With 19/20 on the shooting, the French biathlete ends behin Tora Berger and ahead Helena Ekholm. This season, Marie-Laure signed only one podium in Nove Mesto (3e) due to a bad shape. But today, she shows that she finds de nouveau her ski and her shooting.

"This medal has a very good taste. It replaces all the best I eat! During the last shoot, I didn't ask me questions. I should be concentrate until the end of the race. I thought I could make 20/20 but unfortunately I missed the last ball. That's the game! I'm satisfied of these World Championships. I up my level. There are still two races and I wanting to succeed. But each day, I should all reset. It will be the key of success!"

Unfortunately, Marie Dorin-Habert, also member of Team Rossignol, ends 4th. Here is her reaction after the race: "I try to stay with the group. It was a long race, a fight with myself, it was hard. With the two last shootings, I came back in the race. I gave all I had in the last part but for only three second, I'm not on the podium. I'm a little disappointed but I don't worried about that, it was really a nice race!"

Riders in this news :  Martin FOURCADE

With five mistakes, Martin Fourcade ends only 25th of the individual ranking this Tuesday. He explains the reason of this underachievement. The best representative of Team Rossignol is Michal Slesingr who finish 6th with only one fault to the shoot.

I'm disappointed to have made a race which not represents my level. It was a long time I finish so far in the ranking. I’m fall into the trap of this individual race. I should be stronger for the mass start but nothing is finished. I want to keep my yellow bib. I skied well but the shoot was very bad, I don't know why. I'm very happy of my World Championships but I'm just angry to loose points for the overall ranking.

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!
