Ukraine's women's biathlon team took 8th place in the classic relay at the fourth stage of the World Cup in Oberhof, Germany. Olena Gorodna, Yulia Dzhima, Anastasia Merkushyna and Khrystyna Dmytrenko raced with one penalty lap, falling behind the leader by more than 5 minutes.

Olena Gorodna, who replaced Iryna Petrenko at the last minute, could not boast of either accurate shooting or high speed. As a result, the 19-year-old native of Lviv finished her stage 12th, losing to the leader in 1.47.8.

Yulia Dzima was the next to run, and she managed to lift the team to 9th place with only two additional rounds.

Merkushyna failed her stage. Anastasiia failed to close the target on the rack even with three extra rounds and went for a penalty lap, which dropped the team to the bottom of the peloton (13th place).
