An incredible achievement was set at the Biathlon World Cup
The Norwegian biathlon team has won the men's relay race at the World Cup for the 11th time in a row. The Nordic team achieved this achievement at the fifth stage of this year's competition season, which is currently taking place in Ruhpolding, Germany.
The Norwegians had some problems only in the first half of the race, where they had to use five additional rounds of ammunition at four firing lines. The relay favorites even found themselves outside the top three.
However, Tarjei Boe simply whirled around the course on the third stage and finished with a 43-second lead over his pursuers. Vetle-Sjæstad Christiansen had to use three spare rounds to knock out his 10 targets, but that didn't stop him from leading his team to gold.
This is the 11th consecutive victory of the Norwegian national team in the men's relay race at the World Cup. The last time they failed to win gold was exactly two years ago - on January 15, 2022, in the same Ruhpolding, when they lost to the Russians.
The Ukrainian national team failed to please its fans with high results again. "The Blue and Yellows, consisting of Artem Pryma, Dmytro Pidruchnyi, Denys Nasiko and Vitalii Mandzyn, were in last place after the first stage, but eventually finished 18th, 4 minutes and 44.5 seconds behind the winners.
