"I am very sad.

It's bitter when things go so wrong on a day that is perhaps the most important of the year, ”said the native of Allgäu after she had completely overgrown and ended up in 29th place at the Johaug-Gala with a huge deficit.

In the first half of the 15 km race, Hennig had fallen hopelessly behind due to the clearly inferior material.

"It is very clear that we have sold out of classic wax," said national coach Peter Schlickenrieder: "We had fast skis, but not the necessary grip, especially when things got down to business at the Burgstall."

The 24-year-old Hennig, who scratched at the absolute top of the world this season and wanted to make it into the top 10 at least in the two years of meticulously prepared home appearance, did not blame her service people.

Nevertheless, the frustration was deep: “They expected a lot from me, in the end you are sparkling blue, both physically and mentally,” she said, “but I'll calm down at some point.

My papa is here, as is my friend, that will help. "

The best German was Pia Fink in 19th place (+2: 56.2 minutes).

“It was a very difficult race.

I can be satisfied, I always have respect for a skiathlon, ”said Fink.

The German men had absolutely no chance in the skiathlon victory of the Russian Alexander Bolschunow.

After 30 km, Lucas Bögl, best of a DSV quartet in 29th place, was 4:10 minutes behind.
