Norway wins gold in single mixed

Marte Olsbu Røiseland (NOR) and Johannes Thingnes Bø (NOR, Fischer skis, bindings and boots) are the first World Champions in the single mixed relay. Silver went to Italy, bronze went to Hanna Öberg (SWE, Fischer skis, bindings and boots) and Sebastian Samuelsson (SWE).

For the most part of the first laps, the favorites remained together, despite an extremely high initial speed by Denise Herrmann (GER, Fischer skis, bindings and boots). The German in skiing always made up that time, which she lost by slow shooting or reloading, and led the race again before her next shooting. The preliminary decision fell in the last standing stage of the women, as Norway, Italy and Sweden after quick and perfect shooting opened a gap and handed over directly to the men. in their prone shooting the Swedes lost the connection and Johannes Thingnes Bø made everything clear with a quick and perfect standing stage. He was able to go with a lead the final lap and secure himself and Marte Olsbu Røiseland the title. Silver went to Italy with Wierer/Hofer followed by the also celebrating Swedes Hanna Öberg and Sebastian Samuelsson. Germany with Denise Herrmann and Erik Lesser (GER) took fourth place ahead of Ukraine with Merkushyna and Pidrushnyi (both UKR), who had led with five seconds ahead after half of the race.
