Soukalova in top shape during the last races
While others becoming tired Gabi Soukalova increases her shape more and more: Same to see before christmas at Pokljuka plateau where she reached each possible podium position, now she celebrated three victories in a row in Sibiria at the end of the season. The Czech competed without any miss and was just 25 seconds slower in skiing than Kaisa Mäkäräinen who was able to finish third after two misses. Olga Vilukhina (RUS, Fischer) and Vita Semerenko (UKR, Fischer) were just beaten in the final sprint. Laura Dahlmeier (GER, Fischer skis and boots) came in seventh after one penalty ahead of Ekaterina Glazyrina (RUS, Fischer). Andrea Henkel (GER, Fischer skis and boots) finished ninth followed by Tiril Eckhoff (NOR, Fischer skis and boots).

Eder and Fourcade within top six again
In last men's race this season Simon Fourcade (FRA, Fischer skis and boots) celebrated another victory for his brother Martin (FRA) and a sixth place for himself. The Frenchman picked up two penalties and was just in ninth position after his last shooting. Along with Tarjei Boe (NOR, Fischer) he regained round about 30 seconds during the last lap and was just beaten in the final stretch by Simon Eder (AUT, Fischer skis and boots) who missed only one target. Seventh spot went to the Norwegian followed by Anton Shipulin (RUS, Fischer skis and boots).
