What a beautiful day for the Swedish biathlon in Östersund! After Hanna Oeberg, victorious female sprint at the end of the morning, it was his compatriot Sebastian Samuelon who won the male sprint, signing his seventh success in the World Cup. Author of a faultless, the 24-year-old biathlete, party with bib 12, has succeeded a perfect race, since he has passed at the top of all intermediate crossing points, while being intractable on the footsteps shoot. Its two pursuers did not error either, but were less fast on the skis. These are Norwegians Vetle Christiansen and Johannes Boe, which ends at 11 "8 and 12" 2 of Swedish. And behind this trio, we find ... two French! If Simon Desthieux had managed to ride on the podium Friday on the individual, the best tricolor of the day is Emilien Jacquelin. The 26-year-old biathlete committed firing firing and dropped during his penalty turn, and ends up at J.Boe's eleven seconds, but that is enough for his happiness, who had finished 35th with 6 faults the day before.
