At the Biathlon World Cup at Holmenkollen in Oslo, the two CASCO representatives Darya Domracheva and Veronika Vitkova gained rank second and third at the 15 km individual race behind winner Kaisa Mäkäräinen from Finland. Vitkova optimally exploit the windless conditions and cleaned all 20 targets. Domracheva, however, had one penalty, but was as usual very strong in skiing and fought back to the top and overtook over 40 rivals. Finally even Vitkova failed to stop the Belarus and let her pass. Domracheva appreciatively said about her Finnish rival: "I've given my best today, but with a penalty you can't win here against Kaisa."
