Östersund (AFP) – Biathlete Filip Norat is hoping after his strong debut in season one that he will be considered for the first relay race of the Olympic winter.
“I hope to get as much a job as possible,” the 28-year-old said in the heat of competition on December 4 in Östersund, Sweden. Prior to that, the second season was scheduled to kick off on the 2019 World Cup tracks on Thursday (4.30pm / ARD and Eurosport). In the first ten kilometer competition the previous weekend, Northath had secured qualification for the Winter Olympics surprisingly early in sixth place.
“Ideally, I’d like to build on the score,” said Nawrath, who initially rated the sprint as more important than the relay. the day before.
In the final race, Nawrath was 27.5 seconds behind victorious Swede Sebastian Samuelsson without a shot error. For the Füssen native, this was the second best result of his career. He was only better in singles at Pokluka in January 2020, when he narrowly missed a podium finish in fourth place.
