Lena Hecki Gross wins the individual race

Swiss biathlete Lena Hecki Gross sensationally won the short individual race at the sixth stage of the World Cup, which is currently taking place in the Italian town of Antholz-Anterselva. The 29-year-old athlete, who has only once been on the podium this year, covered the 12.5 kilometer course in 36 minutes and 49 seconds.

Gross was one of four athletes who managed to knock out all 20 targets at four firing lines. She was joined by German Vanessa Vogt, Czech Jessica Jislová and Greenland's Ukalek Astri Slettemark, who finished the course in fourth, tenth and 45th place, respectively.
