Update from January 11, 1:39 p.m .:

The starting signal will be given in Ruhpolding in half an hour!

The long and tough 20 kilometers on artificial snow will demand a lot from the athletes today.

At an advantage is the one who can divide his forces well.

Shooting is particularly important today: For every missed shot, you get an additional minute.

There are no penalty loops.

Anyone who shoots flawlessly has very good chances of a top placement.

The German hopes rest on Benedikt Doll, who has presented himself in good shape in recent weeks, especially on the cross-country ski run.

He will also be the first DSV athlete to start the race.
