A faultless shot from the start for Julia Simon, well launched behind the Italian Wierer in Ostersund…

9:55 a.m.: Hello bibix!

So how are you going to dress for Julia Simon’s coronation day? In truth, it is still too early to tell you when the biathlete from Albertville (Savoie) will be mathematically certain to win her first big crystal globe. But what is certain is that he has been reaching out to him more than ever since the stage in Nove Mesto (Czech Republic) last week, where his Swedish rival Elvira Oeberg ranked only 63rd in the sprint before to be forfeited for the prosecution. Julia Simon now has a 158-point lead overall, as the penultimate stage of the World Cup in Ostersund (Sweden) begins this Thursday (1:15 p.m.) with the individual ladies. All the lights are therefore green for the 26-year-old athlete, on the way to bringing back the first big crystal globe in tricolor women’s biathlon since Sandrine Bailly in 2005. We can’t wait to experience it with you in the coming days. And let’s not forget that Anaïs Chevalier-Bouchet, her sister Chloé, but also Lou Jeanmonnot could have their say in the race for the podium in Ostersund.

Join us here from 1 p.m. for the ladies’ individual, which starts at 1:15 p.m.
