Team Sweden showed a great team performance in mass start at Biathlon World Championships in Ruhpolding. Björn Ferry and Fredrik Lindström (both SWE, Fischer skis and boots) claimed silver and bronze. Tora Berger (NOR, Fischer skis, boots and poles) did it again and secured her third gold medal during Biathlon World Championships in Ruhpolding. Kaisa Mäkärinen (FIN, Fischer skis and boots) celebrated her first medal in Ruhpolding.
Ferry saved silver medal
Björn Ferry fighted hard for his silver medail in mass start in Ruhpolding. During the last loop he had no answer against the new triple-World Champion Martin Fourcade (FRA) and he just stayed in front of his team mate Fredrik Lindström. Fourth went as in individual competition to disappointed Andi Birnbacher (GER, Fischer) followed by Simon Fourcade (FRA, Fischer skis and boots). Arnd Peiffer (GER, Fischer) finished seventh, Evgeny Ustyugov (RUS, Fischer skis and boots) came in tenth.

Fourth medal in sixth race
With only one penalty Tora Berger stormed to another victory. Die Norwegian didn't let her opponents a chance on the last loop although they left the shooting range together with her. Berger added her medal collection another gold one. Kaisa Mäkäräinen finished World Champs with bronze medal. Tina Bachmann (GER, Fischer skis and boots) showed a great race finishing fourth and was very happy: "I saw Darya (Domracheva) during the last loop and I was frightening if she would be able to catch me. If I didn't fall at the beginning maybe a medal would have been possible", stated Bachmann who fell just before the second shooting. The Norwegian Solemdal caused a fall of many athletes who couldn't avoid. "But it was a great shooting and a great race." Darya Domracheva (BLR, Fischer skis and boots) finished fifth. Anastasiya Kuzmina (SVK, Fischer) came in ninth and Weronika Nowakowska (POL, Fischer skis and boots) finished tenth.
