Dorothea Wierer (ITA): A queen at home
Dorothea Wierer’s show was expected in front of her home crowd and she did not disappoint! The Italian biathlete left Antholz with 4 medals. 2 titles of World Champion during the Pursuit and the Individual, 1 silver medal during the Mass Start then one of the same color with the Mixed Relay. She also finishes these World Championships with the yellow bib of the leader.
Emilien Jacquelin (FRA): The revelation
We knew that Emilien Jacquelin was solid since the beginning of the season. He proved it during these World Championships by winning his first 4 career medals. He took the Gold in Pursuit signing his first World Cup victory there, then bronze in Single Mixed Relay, again Gold with an incredible French Relay and finally bronze to finish in Mass Start.
Martin Fourcade (FRA): Back to the top
After a complicated year, Martin Fourcade left these World Championships (the last?) with a good balance sheet. The bronze medal in Sprint to start then his 11th title of World Champion (in an individual race) in the 20km Individual event before finishing - in tears - by gold, again, with the French men's Relay.
They also succeed at these World Championships...
Synnoeve Solemdal (NOR): World Champion with the Norwegian relay
Lisa Vittozzi (ITA), Lukas Hofer (ITA) and Dominik Windisch (ITA): Vice World Champions in Mixed Relay with Italy
And Michal Krcmar (CZE): Bronze medalist with the Czech Mixed Relay
Congratulations to all our athletes and Rossignol Nordic staff for these great results!
