15:34: And the next debutant also seems to be taking his chance. Roman Rees shoots zero when lying down.

15:32: Philipp Nawrath finishes seventh. He was only 2.5 seconds behind fourth place. That was a grand appearance by the 26-year-old, who ran his first World Cup race this season today.

15:29: Nawrath is already losing some time, it will be tight with the podium. Nevertheless, it is a very strong idea here.

15:28: I commit myself, we see a German podium today. Either Doll remains third or Nawrath succeeds in the sensation and he runs right up there.

15:26: It’s a thing. It is the first World Cup race this season for Nawrath and he is about to fight for the podium. It is a furious achievement and will qualify him for the World Cup in Antholz.

15:24: Nawraaaaaath! He also remains standing and is only one second behind Fourcade. There is a sensation in the air here.

15:22: The big surprise from a German perspective could be Philipp Nawrath today. He is still in a very promising position.

15:19: “I have tanked up a lot of sun and strength in the last few days and felt really comfortable at the shooting range. Biathlon is simply fun in these conditions,” says a satisfied Doll in the finish area.

15:17: Philipp Nawrath, who is contesting his first World Cup race this season, with a very strong performance. He stays lying down without mistakes and is also good at running here.

15:13: Philipp Horn shoots one mistake lying and standing. This is good again in terms of running, but with two mistakes that won’t make it into the top ten.

15:12: Vetle Christiansen can’t get past Doll either. The German persists in third place.

15:10: Simon Desthieux finishes and is fourth. France is strong as a team. And thus also in the role of favorites for the season on Saturday.

15:07: Emilien Jacquelin was even on course for victory, but then made a mistake standing up. He no longer wins, but can still run on the podium.

15:05: Now it is time to wait and fear for Benedikt Doll. He is still in third place, but there are still a few people who can be dangerous for the German.

15:03: Too bad Arnd Peiffer will unfortunately miss a top position today. Standing these are two mistakes and therefore too much for the strong competition today.

15:02: Said and done. Fourcade takes the lead ahead of Fillon Maillet and Doll.

15:01: Doll finishes, the spectators carry him across the line. That’s not enough for Fillon Maillet, Doll is second. Fourcade will pass by shortly.

15:00: Fillon Maillet clearly takes the lead. The Frenchman is a candidate for the podium.

14:57: Arnd Peiffer also wants to say a word here. This is a clean shooting, Peiffer takes the lead.

14:56: But victory is only possible with one! Martin Fourcade remains flawless, that could be the Frenchman’s next win.

14:55: Benedikt Doll also flawless on the second shoot! It is a very, very strong performance and will be a top placement.

14:52: Fourcade has so far lived up to its role as favorite. He leads the classification after the first shooting and half of the running distance.
