French biathlete Lou Jeanmonneau has won a dramatic victory in the pursuit race at the 8th stage of the World Cup in the United States. The two-time world champion beat her closest rival, Italian Lisa Vittozzi, by 4 tenths of a second.

After the final fourth shooting, Gianmonno and Vittozzi entered the last lap at a distance of one meter from each other. Vittozzi set the pace for most of the lap until the French star overtook her Italian rival in the final 100 meters to claim her third career victory and second win of the season.

Jeanmonneau called her victory "really cool"

"I had planned to stay behind Lisa until the last 50 meters, but she decided to work the entire distance as hard as possible, hoping that I would not be able to keep up with her pace. We had a little contact just before the finish line, so I would like to spend the final 100 meters on the track better. But in general, I'm happy with the victory. It was interesting, intense, but very tiring," the 25-year-old Frenchwoman commented on her success.
