Yesterday, Quentin Fillon-Maillet has showed the way with a nice third place. Friday, December 20th, Justine Braisaz got inspired. The local biathlete took the second place of the race, two years after her mass-start’s win, here in Le Grand-Bornand. She ended up six seconds behind Tiril Eckhoff, the Norwegian who has been impressive on the skis. Young Marketa Davidova completes the podium.
Athletes have been cheered up by an enthusiastic audience not discouraged by the rain. Either on the shooting range or along the track, they were more than 10 000 spectators giving voice. In the stands, atmosphere was festive : flags and rattles paced the race. Sounds good for the other races of the weekend !
