Fionn Maiet won the same biathlon system at Hochfilzen from seventh place. On Saturday he was No. 4 from the start, and with an excellent shot he took his second straight win at the start of the chase.
The Frenchman led by 16 seconds over Russian Eduard Latepov, who won the race against Christiansen.
“It was probably my biggest emotional race here at home,” Fionn Millett told IBU in front of 20,000 fans at home.
Feeling good on the podium
Christiansen started 39 seconds behind leader Johannes Thingness Poe, and with four flawless shots, he was early in the battle for a place on the podium. However, he failed to beat Latypov in the sprint and finished by a tenth of a second.
– I don’t swear. It was so awful I had to waste six seconds on Latypov’s last lap. I’m glad someone was asked, but he should have had ten more meters. I had a great feeling on the podium and I’m happy about that. It’s crazy to walk, Christiansen said.
On the other hand, Thingnes Bø ruined his entire race with two penalty rounds on the first horizontal shot. He also had to go out on a penalty kick after the first stop. He finished fifth after a flawless final shot.
– I had a good time
Sturla Holm Lægreid was forced out on a penalty round after the false shooting and finished sixth. Tarji Boo followed him at number seven with one penalty round.
– I am happy. It was a little heavier on the track than yesterday, but I enjoyed myself. Legridt told NRK it’s a short distance from the top level, but I’ll arrange that over Christmas.
Seifert Gutturm Bakken only took one penalty round at the start of his chase. He went with him up to 29 degrees and ranked 20th.
Philip Feld Andersen was third, 18 seconds behind Thingness Poe, but with six penalty rounds he fell to 26th. In the end he was 2.53 minutes behind the winner.
Sunday is the joint start of the program in Annecy-le-Grand-Bornand.
