Six Germans at the start
In addition to Benedikt Doll, Roman Rees, Justus Strelow, David Zobel, Johannes Kühn and Philipp Nawrath will also be racing for the DSV team.
Last race of the season
The other Norwegians are also favourites, Sturla Holm Lagreid and Vetle Sjaastad Christiansen are starting with numbers 2 and 3. Today’s mass start is the last race before the summer break. Many athletes will therefore probably be seen for the last time. The German world champion Benedikt Doll had already announced at the beginning of the month that he would continue for another year.
Bö is the measure of all things
Johannes Thingnes Bö was once again the outstanding man in the pursuit yesterday. At the shooting range, the local hero even had time to ask the crowd to be quiet before the last shot. He was also seated, the Norwegian King Harald V was visibly happy.
It’s supposed to start at 12:50 p.m.!
After the sunshine on Saturday, temperatures are around freezing in Oslo today and the dense fog has returned. Ten to 1 it should start in the Norwegian capital.
