Sturla Holm Lægreid (24) gave Johannes Thingnes Poe a match at the door in last season’s World Cup recap. Today the World Cup started with a convincing victory after 20 strikes as usual.
This 24-year-old was the eighth World Cup winner in his 31st race. The stats at normal distance are incredible:
Four 20 kilometers, three wins, second place. Three times he fired 20 hits to normal.
– NRK expert Ola Lunde says what he’s doing is phenomenal.
– I like to say biathlon is like poker. You must play with the cards in your hand. Today, Holm Legridt tells NRK that I have good shots even if I don’t move fast on the track.
I’m not at my best, but I know I’m getting better as I get closer to January and February. I wouldn’t have won if Targe or Johannes had taken 20 shots today, so I’m not unrivaled.

Closest came Tarji Po, who had Doyan. He went faster than younger brother Johannes, but was 59secs behind Holm Legrid in the finish.
Thingnes Bø was unsure of what he looked like after a cold that ruined an entire training week, but he managed to dominate very quickly over the 20km run in Östersund. After a boom in both the first and second shots, he was flawless in the last two shots. It took fifth place.
Simon Desthieux pushed Thingnes Bø off the podium. The Frenchman, like Thingnes Bø, had 18 hits. Scott Gow also offside against Thingnes Bø.
I’m doing a really good race. It’s a little 90 percent workmanship on the landscape that makes me miss, which is a bit of a shame. You’ve got what you’ve been good for today,” Thingnes Bø tells NRK.
In his third World Cup race, Sivert Bakken managed 20 hits when he went to sixth. His best finish was 24th in the sprint sprint to date he was one of three to hit the ruble and bite.
Edward Latypov went to seventh place. He missed on goal and lost a few seconds.
Vetle Sjåstad Christiansen was on the podium before the last shot. There were three blasts, then he finished in fifteenth place.
note! On Sunday, the women’s race goes at 11.00, while the men’s race goes at 13.45.
