Biathlon ace makes illness public. On her Instagram account, the 28-year-old gave a reason related to her bad departure.

The desire to compete led me to put on the bib number in several races, even though I knew my body was in no condition to perform. Chevalier's two teammates fell ill with the coronavirus during the season and were no longer able to perform as well as they did. The Frenchwoman finished 16th in the 2022/23 World Cup and last winter wanted to finally step out of the shadow of her famous sister.
