Stéphane Mougin, Race Director of the Rossignol Group: "We knew that after the retirement of Martin Fourcade we would surely have a little less medal but today to come back with 5 medals is a very satisfactory record. We will remember this magnificent victory of Emilien Jacquelin on the Pursuit with his exceptional shot, it was impressive and good for the future. "

Well done to our Band Of Heroes athletes!
