Italy won a nice third place with the women’s relay at the stage of the Biathlon World Cup which takes place in Kontiolahti (Finland). Our national team has changed the disposition of the athletes and a luxury result has arrived, more than three years after the last appearance on the podium (victory in Hochfilzen in December 2018). Samuela Comola did not shine in the opening, but an amazing Dorothea Wierer in the second fraction brought the tricolor quartet back to the podium.
Federica Sanfilippo was excellent in the third fraction, then a sumptuous Lisa Vittozzi in closed: the sappadina left the pitch and showed great talent, covering all the targets after the initial mistake. A very convincing performance after so many dark moments and which bodes well for this relay race too, which was revolutionized and immediately appeared convincing. Below is the VIDEO with the highlights and the summary of the third place obtained by Italy in Kontiolahti in the World Cup.
