After ten kilometers, Hermann-Wick was 11.0 seconds ahead of the Italian Lisa Vittozzi (2 penalties), third was Elvira Öberg from Sweden (2/+17.2).

Most recently, Herrmann-Wick won the Hochfilzen sprint in early December.

In Antholz, despite two penalties, she improved from sixth place to the top, it was the tenth World Cup victory of her career.

Hannah Kebinger (1/+1:19.6) achieved her best career result with tenth place in only her second race of the season, Janina Hettich-Walz (4/+1:26.7) confirmed her strong sprint in twelfth place.

Sophia Schneider (4/+1:59.8) was again 21st, Vanessa Voigt (2/+2:18.4) was 25th.

Former Relay World Champion Franziska Preuss (3/+3:12.1) improved four places to 34th in the second part of her return to the World Cup.

Hinz is still waiting for his season debut

Vanessa Hinz, who came third in the Olympic relay in Beijing, missed the races in Antholz again due to illness and is therefore still waiting for her season debut in the World Cup.

Finally, on Sunday (11.45 a.m./ZDF and Eurosport) there is a relay over 4x6 km.

Most recently, the quartet of Anna Weidel, Voigt, Schneider and Herrmann-Wick finished second at the home World Cup in Ruhpolding.
