HOW ARE THE REDSTERS DOING?
Atomic star Sondre Fossli ended the World Championship rehearsal in Cogne coming in fifth in the Sprint. Also very pleasing was 6th place for Viktoria Carl in the 10km race. Redster athlete Evgeniy Belov also came in sixth over 15 kilometers. It’s looking very good that this was the qualifying for the Russian for the “15km” race in the World Championships. Belov will definitely be at the start of the Skiathlon. The young Frenchman Valentin Chauvin also got off to a good start. After 7.2 kilometers he was in 4th place, then, ninth after 10 kilometers and finally came over the finishing line in 13th place.
There’s also good news from the Atomic biathlete Benjamin Weger, who came in eighth in the Sprint and sixth in the Pursuit in the World Cup at Soldier Hollow. It didn’t go so well for Redster star Simon Eder initially: after problems with the shooting, he started his catch up, from 37th to 13th place, that’s only really possible with the perfect material set up. In the Mixed Relay, he came in 2nd place and made it a successful Sam weekend from his trip to Soldier Hollow.
