2020 Biathlon World Championship Results
The main biathlon powers are Norway, Germany, Russia, Italy and Sweden. Usually athletes from these countries play among themselves most of the championship medals.
Most of all it is worth highlighting the Norwegians. Almost every year they win first place in the overall medal standings. The last issue of the World Cup was no exception. According to its results, there were 9 awards in the piggy bank of the Norwegian team, 5 of which were gold. The Scandinavians owe their success to such masters with a capital letter as Johannes Tinnes Boe, Ingrid Tandrevold and Tarja Boe.
Russian national team at the 2020 Biathlon World Championship
Before the start of the last edition of the World Cup, sports experts and ordinary fans were worried about how our biathletes would perform. There was something to worry about. The national team lost a number of strong athletes. The male team was particularly affected. The loss of Anton Shipulin seemed irreparable.
However, our guys had a decent World Cup. And although they were not able to win the gold, the Russian biathletes still pleasantly surprised. In the piggy bank of our guys were two silver and one bronze award.
Men were surprised in a good way. Especially Alexander Loginov. On the account of the Russian silver in the sprint for 10 km and team bronze in the relay.
Unexpectedly for all, our veteran Ekaterina Yurlova-Perkht shook antiquity. Russian woman almost became a winner in the mass start! She was a little short of gold.
Frankly speaking, there were better times for our biathletes. However, in conditions of fierce competition, scandalous doping investigations and problems in the Russian biathlon economy, such a result is worthy.
There is no doubt - among the applicants for the prizes of the upcoming tournament there will certainly be domestic masters. At the 2020 Biathlon World Championships, our women and men will often make us speak loudly about ourselves!
