Denise Herrmann-Wick won her second medal at the Biathlon World Championships in Oberhof.

Two days after winning the sprint, the 34-year-old Saxon won silver in the pursuit.

Herrmann-Wick had four penalties and was beaten only by Julia Simon of France (1 penalty), 27.0 seconds back.

Bronze went to Norway's Marte Olsbu Röiseland (3).

Sophia Schneider (4/+1:08.3 minutes) and Hanna Kebinger (2/+1:21.5) rounded off the strong result for the German Ski Association (DSV) in fifth and eighth place.

Herrmann-Wick had the chance to win her second World Championship title at the Rennsteig up until the last shooting, but then had two penalties.

From a German point of view, Laura Dahlmeier last won medals in sprint and pursuit at the same World Cup in Östersund in 2019.

Herrmann-Wick has already won the pursuit title in the same title fights, and the former cross-country skier has now won a total of eight World Championship medals.

For the German team it was the second medal in the fourth competition in Oberhof.
