Johannes Thingnes Bö crowned his sensational season in the Biathlon World Cup on Sunday in Oslo. The Norwegian star won the 15K mass start race and celebrated his 19th win of the season. In 23 individual races he was third three times and twelfth once. An unprecedented record. Bö won with two missed shots after 38:51.9 minutes ahead of Switzerland’s Niklas Hartweg (+26.2/0) and compatriot Vetle Sjaastad Christiansen (+35.2/0).
The 40-year-old Simon Eder was once again the best Austrian and managed to place in the top ten. Flawless, he finished 10th, 1:15.1 back. David Komatz finished 14th with one penalty (+1:42.0). Eder Simon was impressed by the race and a special number. “As expected, the track was brutally hard again and I gave everything again. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough for a better placement, but it was definitely another tremendous race from me,” said the ÖSV team oldie. “I’ve now got 60 clear points in my career, which of course makes me really happy, because staying clean four times here is anything but a matter of course. All in all it was a great competition and of course the top ten is always nice.”
