Peiffer runner-up in skiing
Arnd Peiffer started with a penalty at the shooting range into the competition but cleared the other targets. So he jubilated about his first season's victory after his ten kilometres. "You can see everything is possible although after missing the first target. It was a great race for me. The last shot sound like a miss but I cleared the target and in the last lap I shortened the gap more and more. I was confident that it was possible to win", said Peiffer who was 1.1 seconds ahead of Simon Fourcade at the finish line. Fourcade cleared all targets and just missed his first World Cup victory by a margin. Evgeny Ustyugov shot faultless and finished third. His team mate Andrei Makoveev (RUS, Fischer skis and boots) came in fifth, Klemen Bauer (SLO, Fischer) finished tenth.
