Biathlete Benedict Doll has set a big exclamation mark for 13 days before the start of the Olympic Games in Beijing (4 to 20 February) and impressively underlined its medal ambitions.

The 31-year-old triumphed at the World Cup in Anthony in mass start over 15 km. For doll, most recently already in the sprint of Upholding, it was the third World Cup victory of his career. Most recently he won in December 2019 in the sprint of Annecy.

Doll won in the last single race of men from Olympia in 37: 14.9 minutes with a shooting mistake in front of the Norwegians Johannes Thingies BO (3 / + 31,3) and Stella Hold Agreed (3/1: 28.8 minutes). Johannes Kuhn, so far only German season winner, came after surviving Corona infection after five shooting errors (+3: 21.4) rank 19. Roman Sees (6/3: 33.0) occupied the 21st place. Erik Lesser and Philipp Na wrath had dispensed with Angola on the World Cup.

I’m incredibly happy. After the last shoot I knew it’s run really well. I told me that I’m offensively ranked and risked something. It is really nice that it was up to victory, a radiant said Doll in the ARD. Even ex-colleague And Gaffer was excited after Doll had even held in chess on the last round even the Norwegian Johannes Thingies BO. He did not let himself be rewarded and has been rewarded. The shape and self-confidence, said Gaffer, but adding to Olympia: He has to remain humble.

On Sunday (12.15 clock in the live ticker), the season is still over 4×7.5 km on the program. However, the season does not have the relay towards Olympia, as the DSV team will compete with the second set.
