Emil Hegle Svendsen and Martan Furkad who conduct fierce struggle for a rank of the best biathlonist of a season, were called as unconditional favourites of race. Also in sprint throughout a season Swiss Benjamin Veger and German Arnd Pajffer closing the six of best in sprint offset successfully acted.
Svendsen, as well as Martan Furkad “ have earned “ on a penal circle on “ lezhke “. “ It was shot “ and Pajffer who has missed once in the first firing line and twice on the second. Errors of contenders has used Ustyugs which was exact on “ lezhke “. However two penal circles on which has left Ustyugs after “ racks “ have deleted his name from lists of applicants for medals.

After finish Ustyugs has passed in the mixed zone all in blood. Inspection of doctors which will make the decision is necessary to the biathlonist, whether it is necessary to it to participate in other races. Ustyugs has fallen on very dangerous turn, from - for which the line of this World championship repeatedly was exposed to criticism. During sprint of an order of ten sportsmen also could not keep balance on this site.
