Paralympics 2022 - Biathlon: Leonie Walter sensationally wins gold - Fleig and Wicker also get precious metal

She had also won silver on the unloved classic long-distance cross-country skiing course. “I was at the finish line, I waited and didn’t know if it was enough. At some point everyone jumped up, and then I realized: ‘Ok, I’ve got it’,” said Walter in the “ZDF”: “With a flawless shooting you have a bonus, then it runs much easier. Without the good shooting it would not have been so successful.” Walter started the race cautiously, but worked her way up with her flawless shooting . On the final lap, the favorite Ukrainian made up a lot of ground after her two penalties, but the German made it to the finish after 10 kilometers with a thin cushion.

Fleig takes silver – bronze for Wicker

Walter completed the German set of medals on Tuesday. Martin Fleig had previously won silver in the sitting class, Anja Wicker won bronze in the women’s starting class. “A complete set of medals on the track, that exceeds all expectations,” said DBS President Friedhelm Julius Beucher. After two shooting errors, Fleig was only beaten by the Chinese Liu Mengtao at the first attempt, ultimately missing 47.9 seconds to victory . “I’m super happy. Half of the medal belongs to my wife at home. She always gives me a lot of support,” said the man from Freiburg: “I ran out of breath on the last lap and then I just thought about her.” After the triumph over the long distance in Pyeongchang in 2018, it was his second medal at the Paralympics.

Wicker completes medal set at Winter Games

World champion Wicker completed her set of medals at the Winter Games with bronze, having already won gold and silver in Sochi in 2014. “It’s very relieving. I had hoped in advance that it would be enough for the podium – especially after the good World Cup,” said Wicker: “I noticed from the first meter that it’s how it should be. Then do it It was more fun and then the hope was immediately there.” The 30-year-old from Stuttgart showed a strong performance in spring-like temperatures in Zhangjiakou, especially in terms of running and was able to compensate for her five penalty loops. The American Kendall Gretsch, who won with just one penalty, was 2:33.0 minutes short. In the first biathlon competition in Beijing, both Fleig and Wicker each just missed out on a medal with fifth place.
