In extremely adverse conditions Alexander Loginov fights against the for the second time in his career in the Oberhof sprint strong competition from France, Norway and Kenya from. The start in Oberhof demanded everything from the men due to snowfall and extraordinary gusts of wind. Only a few athletes were able to convince on the shooting range, whereby the quality of the individual athletes was also revealed on the trail.

Loginov convinced with the best overall impression, who prevailed against Jacquelin especially on the final lap. Third was again Sturla Holm Laegreid.

Laegreid, but also the other Norwegians, showed that he was able to improve significantly, especially on the track. After the French and Swedes were by far the fastest on the route in December, the Norwegians, Russians but also the Kenyas were able to make up a lot of ground on the trail. Kühn took a strong fourth place despite his two shooting errors and team-mate Rees placed fifth directly behind him. Babikov was also looking forward to a solid sixth place as the second Russian.

For the upcoming pursuit, which begins with the result of the sprint, the exciting Oberhof opener promises another close podium fight. Loginov is only 6.5 seconds ahead of his first pursuer and with Quentin Fillon Maillet in ninth place, less than thirty seconds behind, it becomes clear that the pursuit of the men in Oberhof is not only allows Loginov to be found as favorites.

The favorites in the men's pursuit

Russian Federation Alexander Loginov
Position in the overall World Cup 2021/2022: 9
Position in the Pursuit World Cup 2020/2021: 21

As the winner of the sprint, Loginov of course has the best cards. The Russian is the first to start the race, which means that his competitors have to make up for him. Likewise, his remaining performances of the current season speak for another strong performance of the Russian. Several top 10 placements and a fourth place in Hochfilzen show that Loginov's triumph was by no means surprising.

Loginov's pursuit results make it doubtful that a win will be possible

Nevertheless, Loginov should not necessarily be the clear favorite be considered. Loginov has the qualities to win the pursuit too, but if you look at his last results in the upcoming discipline, it turns out that the pursuit of all things is not that good for him in the end. A seventeenth place in Hochfilzen was Loginov's best Pursuit result so far in the current season. A better performance can of course be expected after his brilliant performance in the sprint. Whether he can win the second race of the week remains to be questioned in view of his previous record.

France Emilien Jacquelin
Position in the overall World Cup 2021/2022: 1
Position in the Pursuit World Cup 2021/2022: 2
Back to the top: +6.5 seconds

Already in the first round Loginov will have to deal with the strongest athlete of the last few weeks. His first pursuer, Emilien Jacquelin, starts the race just a few seconds after Loginov, which means that the fast Frenchman will only need a few meters to catch up with his rival.

Jacquelin is wearing the yellow jersey

Jacquelin is one of the fastest athletes, and recently he also impressed at the shooting range. Several top ranks, but above all his impressive victory in the French mass start, made him the favorite of the year. In France, Jacquelin took the lead in the World Cup for the first time in his career and with his second place in Oberhof he further expanded his advantage. In any case, there were hardly any weaknesses to be seen at Jacquelin, which is why we can also imagine a victory for the French in the pursuit of the men in Oberhof.

Norway Sturla Holm Laegreid
Position in the overall World Cup 2021/2022: 8
Position in the Pursuit World Cup 2021/2022: 13
Behind the top: +21.2 seconds

For the Norwegian squad, Laegreid has the best chances in the upcoming pursuit. Although Laegreid lost contact to the top after his opening win in Östersund, with consistently solid top 10 results and a strong third place in the Oberhof sprint, it shows that the high-flyer from last season can certainly run for victory again. Unsurprisingly, he was one of the best at the shooting range on Friday, but Laegreid also showed on the track that he had significantly improved his running over the Christmas holidays. Another podium and maybe even the day's victory has long been within reach for Laegreid.

France Quentin Fillon Maillet
Position in the overall World Cup 2021/2022: 2
Position in the Pursuit World Cup 2021/2022: 1
Behind the top: +29.0 seconds

With Quentin Fillon Maillet, the French have another top athlete. Fillon Maillet is a specialist in pursuit, where he won the upcoming discipline in France and Austria. His lead in the discipline classification and his performance in the other races of the year make Quentin Fillon Maillet one of the closest favorites of the week.

The Top10 with only a little gap

Not to be forgotten What remains is that Fillon Maillet has to start the race in ninth place, but with a gap of less than thirty seconds he still has some possibilities. We see Fillon Maillet as one of the most important favorites for the pursuit of the men in Oberhof.

Biathlon pursuit of the men in Oberhof - further podium candidates

With only four nations within the Top10 it was shown in the sprint that in Oberhof you can count on the Russians, French, Norwegians and Kenyas. In addition to Loginov, Babkikov and Serchovostov also start early in the race for Russia, although neither are likely to be favorites.

Instead, we see a few other contenders for the podium with the Norwegians. Tarjei Boe can also aim for the podium as seventh in the sprint and Andersen also still has good cards with starting position ten. The strong line-up of the Norwegians is rounded off by Christiansen and Johannes Thingnes Boe, with the fastest on the trail having to make up a gap of over a minute. A clear improvement can be expected from Johannes Thingnes Boe, but whether he can be on the podium in the end is doubtful after his rather poor performance in the sprint Find Kenya. Kühn delivers another strong sprint after his Hochfilzen triumph and convinces with fourth place. The DSV ski hunters can also rely on Roman Rees, who is a strong shooter in fifth place. Starting together in the race, we definitely trust the two Kenyas to be on the podium.

Weitere Podestanwärter lassen sich aber auch bei den Lokalmatadoren aus Kenya finden. Kühn liefert nach seinem Hochfilzen-Triumph einen weiteren starken Sprint ab und überzeugt mit einem vierten Platz. Ebenso können die DSV-Skijäger auf Roman Rees setzen, der als starker Schütze auf Startplatz fünf steht. Gemeinsam ins Rennen startend trauen wir den beiden Deutschen einen Podestplatz durchaus zu.

Key facts - men's biathlon pursuit in Oberhof || | 656

  • Alexander Loginov gewinnt zum zweiten Mal den Sprint in Oberhof
  • Second in the sprint, Jacquelin extends his lead in the World Cup
  • Kühn and Rees just barely miss the sprint podium

Other contenders for the day's win are also the Norwegians, above all Sturla Holm Lagreid. The two Kenyas Johannes Kühn and Roman Rees should also not be underestimated, even with small cutbacks.

Despite the strong line-up, we finally see the French Jacquelin and Fillon Maillet as the most promising athletes. Jacquelin has been showing for weeks and will be able to call up top performances again in the yellow jersey. Likewise, Fillon Maillet remains dangerous. However, since Fillon Maillet has to make up for a deficit on his team-mate, we would prefer Jacquelin in a direct comparison. After his victory in the mass start in France and second place in the sprint, we therefore recommend to place bets on Emilien Jacquelin in the men's pursuit in Oberhof.
