Tora Berger (NOR, Fischer skis, boots and poles) succeeded as well in pursuit after her win in sprint race. Anastasiya Kuzmina (SVK, Fischer) came in third again.
Berger unstoppable
Tora Berger was unbeatable again in front of her home crowd. The Norwegian started first into today's pursuit and due to her great last loop she finished 30 seconds ahead of Marie Dorin Habert (FRA). Berger missed four tagets in a very stormy competition as well as Anastasiya Kuzmina who was able to repeat her podium after sprint race. Krystyna Palke (POL, Fischer skis and boots) increased from 16 to four despite her two misses. Darya Domracheva (BLR, Fischer skis and boots) finished fifth after missing nine targets. Tiril Eckhoff (NOR, Fischer skis and boots) surprisingly came in sixth after her 15th spot in sprint followed by Teja Gregorin (SLO, Fischer) and Valj Semerenko (UKR, Fischer). Andrea Henkel and Laura Dahlmeier (both GER, Fischer skis and boots) finished ninth and tenth.

Tarjei Boe made a podium again
Tarjei Boe (NOR, Fischer) made another podium at biathlon World Cup in Oslo. The Norwegian picked up two penalties in difficult wind conditions and was ranked second behind World Cup leader Martin Fourcade (FRA). Arnd Peiffer (GER, Fischer) came in fourth after two misses followed by Alexey Volkov (RUS, Fischer) and Simon Eder (AUT, Fischer skis and boots). Fredrik Lindström (SWE, Fischer skis and boots) increased to spot seven ahead of Andriy Deryzemlya (UKR, Fischer skis and boots). Simon Fourcade (FRA, Fischer skis and boots) finished ninth followed by Jakov Fak (SLO).
