One day Johannes Thingnes Bö might tell his granchildren about this great10 km Sprint. At the Biathlon World Cup in Ruhpolding, the Norwegian demonstrated all his skills. With the precision of a Swiss Watch, he not only remained flawless at the shootings, but also buried the whole sprint field. Despite the energy-sapping new snow his skiing seemed to be easy. He sovereignly won by a margin of 23.5 seconds. Bö commented on his race: "I started behind Ole and Emil, so I was focused on catching them...I knew my shape was really good... In the first stage, I got ahead of Emil and then after standing, I was ahead of Ole; then I knew all I had to do was push to the finish...It was a lot like racing in Norway; I could hear the crowd on every standing shot." In addition he summed up: "I was very focused and concentrated at the shooting range. That was the key to success. After the second shooting I knew, no one can beat me today."
