Live Ticker – (Winter Olympics – Individual (15 km) Women 2022)


Herrmann flies!

On the first four laps, Denise Herrmann was significantly slower than Marte Olsbu Røiseland. But apparently the Germans have divided up their forces well and are now really hitting the ground running. The Norwegian loses 13 seconds per kilometer!


The last shot again…

Insanity! Marketa Davidová also has a chance to shoot clean and take a huge lead, but misses the very last shot! This means that she will no longer get Denise Herrmann and the German chances of winning a medal will increase!


It’s going to be tight

Anaïs Chevalier-Bouchet has a great chance to take a clear lead on the last standing stage, but she also has to record her first miss! She is almost five seconds behind Denise Herrmann.


Hauser fails again

Lisa Hauser didn’t have her best day today! She has her third penalty on the last standing stage and has no chance of a top ten.

10:40 a.m

Sensational! Herman is running for gold!

What a last shooting from Denise Herrmann! The German keeps her nerves and, standing, chases all five shots into the target in no time at all! It will definitely be a top result, maybe even gold. Her advantage over Marte Olsbu Røiseland before the last lap is 15.6 seconds. Is that enough?


Wierer shoots himself out

Dorothea Wierer recovered after her one mistake and would have taken the lead with a clean final stage. But the Italian misses twice and is out of the medal race!


The Last Shot

Marte Olsbu Røiseland is already on the last shooting and almost went for the front again, but the very last shot misses! With two penalty minutes it should be tight with a medal. However, everyone else has to do at least one shooting first.


15 hits for Chevalier Bouchet

We have a new leader after the third shooting! Anaïs Chevalier-Bouchet riveted all five targets for the third time and took the lead with a 26-second lead over Marte Olsbu Røiseland, who was much faster on the track. Behind them are currently Dorothea Wierer and Denise Herrmann.


Öberg and Herrmann with mistakes

Now it gets one after the other! Denise Herrmann misses the third shot while lying down, but stabilizes and scores two more goals. With just one mistake after three shooting bouts there is still a lot going on. Hanna Öberg also makes a mistake standing and cannot take the lead.


Two errors at Braisaz-Bouchet

Now Justine Braisaz-Bouchet messes up for the first time! The Frenchwoman misses two shots while standing.


Eckhoff fails twice, Røiseland sure

Tiril Eckhoff came to the second shooting with a huge lead, but apparently overdid himself a bit on the cross-country ski run. The Norwegian misses the last two shots while standing and gets two minutes away. Her compatriot Marte Olsbu Røiseland, meanwhile, has not failed for the second time after her mistake at the start and is still at the top.


Davidová stay tuned

Marketa Davidová just likes this single mode. Solid mileage and two spotless shooting bouts make her a contender for victory today. She is currently 12 seconds behind Denise Herrmann.


Vittotti shoots himself out

What was happening there? Lisa Vittozzi misses all five shots in the first prone stage and is out of the medal race. Absolutely untypical for an otherwise safe shooter!


Error at Hauser

Unfortunately, Lisa Hauser misses a disc in standing. Since she can’t keep up with the front runners either, it should be tight with a top placement.


Eckhoff on the move very quickly

After the first shooting, Tiril Eckhoff has now taken the lead thanks to a flawless rapid fire interlude. Justine Braisaz-Bouchet also started with five goals and is in the lead.


Wierer blunders, Herrmann stays cool!

On the second shooting Dorothea Wierer also gets it for the first time and the Italian falls back behind Røiseland after her first penalty. Denise Herrmann then does it better and knocks out all the panes! The German stays flawless and takes a clear lead!


Voigt on the way

With the number 36, the second German has just started with Vanessa Voigt. Franzi Preuss follows with the 71 and Vanessa Hinz with the 80.


Two clean series

Pyeongchang Olympic champion Hanna Öberg comes to the first shooting and quickly rivets all five targets while lying down. Meanwhile, Marte Olsbu Røiseland is challenged on the stand for the second time and this time he hits all five attempts while standing.


Davidová has a solid start

The Czech Markéta Davidová surprisingly won the singles at the season opener in Östersund. Clean again today and keeps her chances open but is ten seconds behind Herrmann.


Surprisingly many mistakes

With a constant light wind from the left, quite a few tickets are booked here. The French Anaïs Bescond fires twice and already has two minutes in her luggage. Lisa Hauser and Anaïs Chevalier-Bouchet, on the other hand, got through without a mistake and lined up behind Denise Herrmann.


Wierer faultless, Herrmann too

Dorothea Wierer puts down a spotless rapid-fire shot on the first shot and clearly takes the lead. A little later, Denise Herrmann also comes to the shooting range and takes it much easier, but also hits everything. Tight lead for the German!


Hauser, Oberg, Eckhoff

The next big names are now on the way. Lisa Hauser is on the road for Austria, the Swede Hanna Öberg is one of the absolute top favourites. Norway’s Tiril Eckhoff stumbles briefly at the start, but gets away safely and wants to be right at the front here as well.

10:09 a.m

First shooting

Marte Olsbu Røiseland comes to the first shooting. The conditions are a lot better than last time in the mixed relay and there should be few problems in the prone position. However, the Norwegian misses once and gets a penalty minute, as is usual in singles.


Røiseland comes on quickly

A first little pointer at the first split after 900 meters. Marte Olsbu Røiseland has already beaten Dorothea Wierer by more than nine seconds! The Norwegian lets it rip right away.


Herrmann first DSV starter

As the eighth, the first German is already on the track. With the best time in the mixed relay, Denise Herrmann has shown that she is in good form. If things go reasonably well at the shooting range today, then something is going to happen here.


Dorothea Wierer attacks

With starting number four, the next co-favorite is about to take to the track. Italy’s Dorothea Wierer sets off in pursuit of Japan’s Tachizaki, who started 30 seconds ahead of her.

10:01 a.m

Here we go!

The race is on! Marte Olsbu Røiseland was the first of 89 starters to take to the track.


The wind, the wind…

…will probably also play a crucial role today. Strong gusts had already turned the first biathlon race in Zhangjiakou into a gamble at the shooting range and caused harsh criticism. “This place is not made for biathlon,” Norway’s Tarjei Bø clarified. Slightly better conditions are forecast for this Monday afternoon, but shooting should still be a big challenge.


Trio from Switzerland

Switzerland sends three athletes to this individual race in Beijing. Two generations are involved. Newcomer Amy Baserga is 16 years younger than the experienced Selina Gasparin. Meanwhile, Lena Häcki should have the best chance of a good placement. The 26-year-old finished ninth in the pursuit of Östersund, the only Swiss top ten result this winter.


ÖSV hopes for Hauser

In the Austrian camp, hopes naturally rest on Lisa Hauser. The reigning mass start world champion has already impressively made it clear in the individual in Östersund with second place that the mode suits her. Hauser starts the race with starting number eleven. In addition, Julia Schwaiger, Katharina Innerhofer and Anna Juppe are allowed to represent the red-white-red colors today.


Preuss makes her comeback

In the German team, the eyes are mainly on Franziska Preuss. After two months of injury and Corona break, the 27-year-old returns to the big stage. “I’m just happy to be back and to be able to get involved,” said Preuss rather cautiously in advance. Denise Herrmann, who finished third at the season opener in Östersund, has already shown that she can definitely be at the top in the individual competition. In addition, Vanessa Voigt and Vanessa Hinz start for Germany.


Røiseland the big favourite

Marte Olsbu Røiseland has impressively made her mark on the World Cup this season so far. The Norwegian has already won six races and thus leads the overall World Cup. In this individual, the 31-year-old will start the race with starting number one and show what is possible today. The Swede Hanna Öberg has already won Olympic gold and world championship titles in singles and is still highly valued today. The two individual races of the current winter went to the Czech Markéta Davidová and Justine Braisaz-Bouchet from France.


Warm welcome

Hello and welcome to the next biathlon decision at the Beijing Olympics! In the first individual race of these games, at 10 a.m., the women will compete individually over 15 kilometers.
