World Cup bronze! Doll “proud”

Benedikt Doll shows his critics and wins bronze at the Biathlon World Championships. Only the two Bö brothers from Norway are too strong.

Benedikt Doll has ended the medal curse for the German biathlon men. The 33-year-old won bronze in the 20 km individual at the World Championships in Nove Mesto after a strong performance. The DSV biathletes had to wait 1092 days for precious metal at a major event. On Tuesday, Janina Hettich-Walz had already won silver in the women’s individual for the German Ski Association (DSV).

Johannes Thingnes Bö won his 19th world title with a shooting error. The 30-year-old clearly won in 45:49.0 minutes ahead of his brother Tarjei Bö (1/+58.9 seconds) and Doll, who was 1:53.3 minutes behind after a shooting error. After defending his title, superstar Bö is only one World Cup victory behind legend Ole Einar Björndalen. Roman Rees (2), Johannes Kühn (4) and Philipp Horn (5) had nothing to do with the outcome of the race.

“The result isn’t particularly surprising to me. I really like running individually, it’s less stressful, I can concentrate on myself,” said Doll after his bronze coup on ZDF. Even though things didn’t go well for him at the start of the World Cup, he stayed relaxed. “I went to the shooting range – and I wasn’t afraid, I had fun,” explained Doll, adding: “I’m proud that I stayed so cool.”

The last medal for the German men to date was won by Arnd Peiffer (silver in the individual) in 2021, who had recently criticized Doll. The last World Cup triumph to date was five years ago, Peiffer won in Östersund in 2019. The men did not win a medal at the last two major events.
