The women and men sprint and pursuit will take place during the weekend.
In men, current World Cup Leader Martin Fourcade will be one of the favorites together with Norwegian Emil Egle Svendsen.
Slovenian Jakov Fak also presented himself in top shape in this season’s beginning and should not be disregarded specially form the sprint event.
In women Tora Berger showed she is still in top form after winning the last event,
and she will probably fight for victory against Darya Domracheva (absent from the last sprint and pursuit due to a flu), Gabriela Soukolova,
and Miriam Gossner.
