–I’m really pleased to win today, and I’m so happy! This is my second gold in Holmenkollen,” Habert beamed after the race.
Teammate and silver medalist Anais Bescond was also very pleased with her race and applauded her compatriot:
–For the French team this is really special. Marie Dorin is my good friend, so it’s fun to achieve this together today, Bescond stated to Norwegian TV channel NRK after the race.
Norwegian Tiril Eckhoff, who won the women’s sprint competition on Saturday, became undone by two misses at the first bout of shooting.
–It was really disappointing to start with two misses, because I knew I wouldn’t have a chance. On the other hand, I’m really pleased with the final two shooting rounds, Eckhoff said to NRK.
