Good Saturday afternoon, welcome to the online broadcast of the World Cup biathlete sprint from Kontiolahti, Finland. The race starts at 12:45.
The Biathlon World Cup is slowly coming to an end. After a challenging season, culminating in the Olympics, only three weekend events took place. This week’s race in Kontiolahti, Finland, next week hosts the Otepää race in Estonia and the conclusion will traditionally take place in Oslo, Holmenkollen, Norway. Relay was in the program on Thursday and Friday, but the Czechs didn’t do well. The women finished eighth after another Charvát penalty shootout, and the men were happy that they weren’t hit in a round like in the Olympics.
We will be involved in the women’s sprint today, the same discipline will be waiting for the men in the afternoon, and the fighter race will take place tomorrow. Today, the Czech team will be represented by five competitors. In addition to the traditional name, we can also look forward to Eliška Teplá.

The Czech’s biggest hope is Markéta Davidová, who twice lost her hair medal in Beijing. He didn’t sprint at the Olympics, so today he wanted to make up for it. It should belong to a wider circle of favourites, in the absence of Russian, Belarusian and Ukrainian biathletes, the crest is narrower. Nevertheless, we have all the strong Norwegians, Swedes, French or Germans here.

The race has started.
Lena Häckiová of Switzerland was first on the track.
Frenchwoman Anais Chevalier-Bouchet is already in the race.
Ingrid Tandrevoldová left the gate early with five. Norka had health problems in Beijing, but now she looks fit.
Elvíra bergová is also in the race with eight, which this year also surpassed her sister Hanna in results.
Markéta Davidová has just started the track.
Lena Häcki made two mistakes, Anais Chevalier-Bouchet one.
She shot Paulina Fialková and took the lead. Norway’s Tandrevold failed twice.
Elvíra bergová also scored one error and went into the 150-meter penalty round.
Justine Braisaz-Boucheotvá showed a clean shot and was the first so far.
Marte Olsbová Röiseland, the leading woman at the World Cup in this discipline, enters the race with number 24.
Markéta Davidová started well, but in the end she made a mistake once and had to go to the penalty circuit.
Vanessa Voigt shot cleanly, but came back in fifth place twenty seconds.
Quick shot did not bring success for Dorothea Wierer. The Italian even made a mistake twice.
Paulina Fialková once made a mistake in the second item.
Jessica Jislová handled the first shoot perfectly.
A clean shot for Tiril Eckhoff, who moved up to second after just one second after the first.
Anais Becondová also made one mistake after the first shooting stop.
Elvíra bergová for the second time with one error. We’ll see where his sprint takes him.
Justine Braisaz-Bouchet missed a great starting position and made a mistake twice in the stands.
Norwegian number one Marte Röiseland does not forgive a single fault on the first item.
Hanna berg had one glitch after sleeping.
Markéta Davidová scored her second number one and today she won’t be writing a clean item.
German competitor Vanessa Voigt has a second zero. His compatriot Herrmann handled the first item well.
Lisa Therese Hauser didn’t do well either. Another great shooter made three mistakes.
Tiril Eckhoff had to stand in one penalty round.
Jessica Jislová also missed a stand and had to complete an extra 150 yards.
Sweden’s Linn Persson attacked the second zero, but missed just once.
Elvíra bergová was already at the finish line, with two errors she lost just 2 seconds to Chevalirová-Bouchetová and the Frenchwoman made only one mistake.
Marte Röiseland won’t win today, he’s also wrong on the second item.
Markéta Davidová is seventh in the finish so far.
Vanessa Voigt put herself between Chevalier-Bouchet and Elvira berg in second place. Nice race for a young German.
Denise Herrmann made a mistake twice and probably won’t pick up gold today.
Tiril Eckhoff is ten seconds ahead of Chevalier-Bouchet and still leads. Excellent Norwegian breed.
So fix it. Due to a graphic error, it is stated that Denise Herrmann missed twice. He missed only one target and was in the game for gold.
Marte Röiseland finished fifth and Herrmann and Hanna berg, who rode with one error, would definitely overtake him.
Hanna is older than berg’s sister. By one mistake, he was 1.8 seconds behind Tiril Eckhoff.
Denise Herrmann 5 seconds ahead of Tiril Eckhoff. Germany is very likely to win today.
Markéta Davidová is sixteenth so far, Jessica Jislová is fourteenth.
Stina Nilsson could have fought for the podium, but once she made a mistake. Even so, this former classic runner will fight for the success of the first biathlon.
Karoline Knotten showed an excellent race and was tenth in the finish.
Stina Nilsson is riding her best biathlon race and approaching the finish line. We’ll see where it goes.
Stina Nilsson did it and for the first time after moving from classics to biathlon she rose to the podium. Just two hundredths behind Eckhoff and 5.2 seconds behind Herrmann. He pushed compatriot Hanna bergová out of third place.
Today, the victory was taken by the German Denise Hermann, today in the ranks of a woman always with one mistake. The second was 5 seconds behind Tiril Eckhoff, the third shocked Sweden’s Nilsson. The Czech competitors did not do well, Jislová and Davidová finished in the top ten and they are not in an ideal position for the fighter. Charvátová and Puskarčíková also advance to tomorrow’s fighters.
That’s all for me for now, thanks for your attention and I wish you a nice rest today.
