Biathlon: Benedikt Doll frustrates the Norwegians at Oberhof

The German Benedikt Doll won the sprint (10 km) in Oberhof (Germany) counting for the Biathlon World Cup, ahead of three Norwegians, Sturla Laegreid, Endre Stroemsheim and Johannes Boe, leader of the general classification, Friday in the middle of daytime.

In the fog of the Thuringia resort in eastern Germany, Benedikt Doll completed the 10 kilometers in 24’12”2, with one fault on the standing shot, just like Sturla Laegreid and Endre Stroemsheim. Doll was ahead of Laegreid by two seconds, and Stroemsheim by five seconds, promising a suspenseful chase (12.5 km) on Saturday (12:25 p.m.), a race format which preserves the order and the gaps of the sprint.

Leader of the Biathlon World Cup, Johannes Boe made one mistake on the prone shot and one on the standing shot, failing twenty seconds behind Doll. He strengthens his yellow bib, with 534 points, 87 more than his brother Tarjei Boe (447), seventh on Friday. The French did not particularly shine. 14th, Quentin Fillon-Maillet was the best of them, even if he can regret his two errors in standing shooting which deprived him of a better ranking. Fabien Claude (28th) and Emilien Jacquelin finished even further behind. Weather conditions in eastern Germany (wind, mild temperatures and rain) forced organizers to postpone the men's sprint from Thursday to Friday.
