Allowing for 4 shooting only one penalty, 29-year-old Italian 9.5 seconds ahead of Germany’s Denise Herrmann started 5th, and 13.8 – Reiseland.

After the sprint racing (4th place behind 26 sec.) the captain of the female national team of Ukraine Olena Pidhrushna had a good chance to compete for a medal in the pursuit race, but already on the first shooting had two penalties, and then hope was too optimistic.
