It’s definitely been a great week for Anaïs Chevalier-Bouchet! After her third place in the sprint on Friday, the Frenchwoman climbed to third place on the podium in pursuit of Nove Mesto (Czech Republic), this Saturday. Imperial in shooting (20/20), she finished behind the two Norwegians, Marte Olsbu Roeiseland, who did the sprint/pursuit double, and Ingrid Tandrevold. At 30, she thus offers herself her fourth podium of the season.
Julia Simon rushes towards the big globe
Starting in ninth position and fourth in pursuit thanks to a good performance on skis (+ 53′’0), Julia Simon is widening the gap at the top of the general standings since her main competitor, the Swede, Elvira Oeberg, passed through the sprint Friday (63rd), did not participate in the discipline of the day. She thus offers herself a comfortable lead of 158 points, while there are only five races left to compete this season.
