Denise Herrmann has given the German biathlon team a great prelude to the Olympic Winter. The 32-year-old took a strong third place at the World Cup start in Öresund in single races over 15 km. Herrmann lay with only one shooting error 1: 23.0 minutes behind the error-free single-world champion Market David ova from the Czech Republic and the Austrian Lisa Theresa Mauser (1 / + 1: 17.7).

For Herrmann, it was the 15th podium place of her career. She has already made the qualification for the winter games in Beijing (4 to 20 February) perfectly. I’m happy with the kick-off. Running was still a bit tough, but I expected that so that a mistake annoys me, but I feel stable in shooting, said Herrmann in IDF.

Second best biathlete of the German Ski Association (DSV) was surprised at icy minus 8.5 degrees Anna Wade. The 25-year-old secured the ninth place for impeccable shooting performance (+2: 28.6) and half the DSV standard for Olympia (once top 8, twice top 15) — as well as Vanessa Vogt (1 / + 2: 51, 8) as twelfth. For Either and Vogt it was the best World Cup result of your career.


Not that good ran the prelude for Franziska Prussia, which had occupied third rank in the overall World Cup last winter. The 27-year-old had to be satisfied with four shooting errors (+3: 28.3) with ranked 23. Nevertheless, it is positive for the upcoming races.
