Without Franziska Press and Denise Herrmann, Franziska Hildebrand was at the World Cup in Anthony in the individual over 15 km best biathlete of the German Ski Association (DSV). The 34-year-olds not nominated for the Olympic Winter Games in Beijing (4 to 20 February), occupied the 15th place at the Frenchwoman Justine Braisaz-Bouchet. Anna Wade, who is in China, came only to rank 26.

In the absence of Mate Olsen Roseland (Norway) as well as Hanna and Elvira Berg (Sweden) triumphed Braisaz-Bouchet after a shooting mistake in 42: 20.6 minutes before their teamkollegin Julia Simon (2 / + 51.1 seconds) and the Sweden Mona Bronson (2 / + 1: 37.2 minutes). Hildebrand had after four mistakes 3: 39.9 minutes behind, but showed strongly with the October runtime in the trail.

The 34-year-old had hoped for Olympia. She has unfortunately erroneously assumed that the races in Anthony also count to a possible nomination. The greater the disappointment now that I could not qualify for Beijing despite the increasing form, said the former season world champion. She is not happy, as it runs.

Either only made a mistake on the shooting range, but still had 4: 19.0 minutes behind. Janine Hectic (5 / + 5: 14.2), Juliane Early Wire (2 / + 5: 36.4), Hanna Singer (3 / + 5: 50.9) and Sophia Schneider (3 / + 6: 00,9) Missed the top 30 clearly.

Herrmann and Vogt are spared

Prussian, which is in construction after foot injury and corona infection and is not at the start in Anthony, was missing as well as Denise Herrmann. The 33-year-old is used as Vanessa Vogt only on Sunday in mass start.

On Saturday, the men’s mass start of men takes place over 15 km (12.50 clock). The men’s squat over 4×7.5 km is planned for Sunday (12.15 clock). For women, the season is still over 4×6 km on Saturday (15.00 clock) and the mass start over 12.5 km on Sunday (15.15 clock) on the program.
