The South Tyrolean hits her first success of the season on her favorite track. On the podium also Chevalier-Bouchet and Oeberg
Extraordinary Dorothea Wierer, winner of the inaugural women’s sprint of the World Cup stage hosted in “her” Anterselva. In one of the best performances of the season, the South Tyrolean showed her class with a test of precision and courage to celebrate her first success of the season. Second position for the French Chevalier-Bouchet, who arrived at 2″8 without shooting errors and third position for Elvia Oeberg at 8″7, again without errors. Lisa Vittozzi finished in 13th position: the sappadina ran into two errors at the first polygon, also due to the strong wind, however showing great mental strength to reopen the race, without giving up, until placing the paw with the fifth total time on skis, combined with a second fast and classy polygon.
The other blue ones
Further back the other Italians: Samuela Comola is 25th with an error at 1’21”, Hannah Auchentaller 42nd with 2 errors at 1’45″7 and Rebecca Passler 54th with 3 errors at 2’14″1. All our representatives are in any case, you manage to detach the pass for the pursuit on Saturday 21st, at 13. The words of the Azzurri: “I’m very happy for today, I didn’t think it would go so well – says a beaming Wierer – I didn’t feel so good on skis, I had my legs were heavy and I didn’t have a super feeling. In the end, the important thing was the polygon, where I worked well with the double zero, but I was very worried because, at the start of the race, the wind made me a bit anxious. Given the difficulty I tried to control every shot, and I’m very happy. Surely winning at home is always better, with friends and my family. Memories of past years come back to me and it’s very nice. I didn’t think I’d win in the end because Chevalier is very strong on skis, but today we’re only taking the positive things.”
