Domracheva celebrates a felicitous end of World Championships
Darya Domracheva crowned her kinky World Champs in Nove Mesto with a World Championship title in mass start. The Belarussian missed one target in the first and last shooting stage and stayed 8.7 seconds ahead of seemingly tired Tora Berger who missed two targets as well. Surprise of the day came to Polish Monika Hojnisz who sensationally secured bronce with only one penalty. Fourth went to Vita Semerenko (UKR, Fischer). Miriam Gössner (GER, Fischer) lost all her medal hopes after three misses at the last standing stage and finished sixth. Krystyna Palka (POL, Fischer felicitous) picked up just one penalty same to her compatriot and came in seventh ahead of Teja Gregorin (SLO, Fischer). Jana Gerekova (SVK, Fischer) finished tenth.

Four times clear shooting for Boe
"For me in a biathlon season counts only the yellow bib and World Championship medal  - that's why my season is more or less over tomorrow", Tarjei Boe said in yesterday's press conference. In mass start the Norwegian secured another gold after two successes in both relays and became World Champion in mass start. In all four shootings he cleared each target and was able to stay ahead of his chaser despite his missing shape after many sicknesses. Silver went to Anton Shipulin who picked up one penalty. Ondrej Moravec (CZE, Fischer) came in fourth, Björn Ferry (SWE, Fischer skis and boots) finished only eighth despite his absolutely clear shooting followed by Simon Fourcade (FRA, Fischer skis and boots).
