Amazing shooting by Tuuli with only 1 error in a difficult day for all girls in the range. She was slower by 43″ to her main rival today Svetlana Mironova of Russia who was the fastest on track but with 1 error more in shooting has lost to Tomingas by 16.2″. Another amazing fact: Tomingas stand perfectly in last lap and especially in the last 1000m was as fast as the Russians!
3rd has finished Uliana Kaisheva with 3 shooting errors, the 3rd best ski time and almost 7″ behind Mironova. Top 6 has been completed by Coline Varcin of France (4th, 2 errors), Evgeniya Pavlova of Russia (2nd after shooting 2 but collapsed in last lap and lost a medal- she had 2 errors ), Anastasia Evsyunina of Russia (6th with 2 errors).
Amazing performance by Russian team since all 5 ladies have finished within top 12 with 4 of them in top 6! A new strong generation is coming after the Olympics?
