Krčmář kept himself in the front group in the first two laps thanks to a flawless start, but he missed once in the second shooting and fell to fifteenth place. Vestoje then had to do two penalty laps and dropped to the bottom of the top twenty. With the final zero, he improved a bit again.

The winner of the Bö World Cup had to make up for the loss after the opening “lie”, where he made one mistake, but then he built up a significant lead and another mistake in the final item could no longer affect his triumph to change nothing. He left the flawless Swiss Niklas Hartweg behind by 16.7 seconds.

But it wasn't enough for him for a small crystal globe. Thanks to the third place, he was defended by another Norwegian Vetle, Sjaastad Christiansen, who today lost 19.4 seconds to Bö. But he beat him by thirty points in the discipline evaluation. Bö paid for his absence from Östersund, after being treated for the coronavirus.

Davidová had an excellent race. After the initial clean shooting, she recorded one error in the next two events, but she ran great. She came to the final stand in a group that, thanks to the hesitation of Lou Jeanmonnot, was fighting for second place. But the 26-year-old Czech could not handle the situation, missed four targets and fell to 21st place.

She couldn't cope with the thick fog on the shooting range. “Unfortunately, I didn't see anything, it turned out accordingly. I was all gray,” she lamented in an interview on Czech television. The conditions seemed similar to those on Friday, when the women's sprint was cancelled. “They were the same for everyone, and some see better and some worse in this, it can't be influenced much,” she added. In the final round, she at least took advantage of the fact that she had the fastest running time of the day and improved by five places.

Voborníková also made six mistakes on the shooting range, and because of this she only finished in the middle of the third ten. “It wasn't as ideal as yesterday. Worse than the fog was the rain on the track and the unpleasant snow on the slopes, it was really dangerous there today. There were such unnecessary shots at the shooting range,” she said.

Although Öberg made one mistake on the final item after three zeroes, she still beat Marte Olsbu Röiseland by 22.6 seconds, who said goodbye to her career with second place. The Norwegian team then sprinkled her with champagne at the finish line. The French Anais Chevalier-Bouchet, who finished third, received a big farewell in the finish area.

The overall winner of the World Cup, Julia Simonová from France, secured the small crystal globe with today's fifth place. Davidová dropped from the seventh place to the final ninth in the overall standings. The innkeeper was thirteenth in the men's series.
