Berger wins overall biathlon world cup - henkel twelfth

"I don’t think anyone has ever been as dominant in the biathlon as she has been this year," said andrea henkel after the norwegian’s third success at holmenkollen. The 35-year-old from thuringia was once again the best german in the mass start in twelfth place, but missed out on a possible podium finish in the final push.

Berger was once again the mab of all things in their home country. The norwegian won the 12.5 kilometer race ahead of anastasiya kuzmina from slovakia and mass start world champion darja domratcheva from belarus, celebrating her eleventh victory of the season.
