Biathlon World Cup Ruhpolding, Womenâ€™s Sprint
The conditions for the womenâ€™s race today were similar to those for the menâ€™s event yesterday.
Despite the warm weather, the uphill sections remained firm, ensuring fair conditions for all athletes. On the day, it was the Norwayâ€™s Tora Berger who dealt best with the prevailing conditions. She won with zero shooting penalties, just a second in front of Andrea Henkel from Germany. Superstar Magdalena Neuner finished third with one missed target.
Both athletes are sponsored by Toko. Congratulations!
