Norway’s Sturla Holm Laegreid won a 15-km mass start event for men and Austria’s Lisa Theresa Hauser a 12.5-km mass start event for women as the 2021 Biathlon World Championships wrapped up in Slovenia’s Pokljuka.
Slovenia’s team failed to deliver in terms of medals, having hoped for at least one in the mean’s team. All the 12 races over the past two weeks at the biggest winter sports event in Slovenia so far were held without spectators because of the pandemic. The Slovenian organisers are still happy, saying Pokljuka has made name for itself to continue hosting World Cup events in the future.
