biathlete dahlmeier believes in recovery in olympic winter

Soon laura dahlmeier wants to be the same again. "I’m sure that now it will go forward again peu à peu", said germany’s rough olympic gold hope before the departure from hochfilzen.

At the last world cup of the year in annecy-le grand bornand, it’s all about dahlmeier and the other german biathletes on thursday (14.15) off with the sprint competition. Saturday will be the pursuit and sunday the first mass start of the season.

For the seven-time world champion, it will be a really stressful time afterwards. After the last world cup race of the year, it’s off to baden-baden to vote for athlete of the year. And after her five gold medals at the world championships in hochfilzen in february, dahlmeier is the top favorite for the women’s title. She was then the successor of tennis-queen angelique kerber. And she became the first biathlete after record world champion magdalena neuner to be crowned athlete of the year.

After the relay victory on sunday together with vanessa hinz, franziska hildebrand and maren hammerschmidt, the young biathlete was happy. "It’s a lot of fun to be back on top, together with the whole team. It gives us confidence for the next races," said the athlete from garmisch-partenkirchen.

She is now optimistic about the olympic winter with the games in pyeongchang as the high point: "the competitive hardness, the tempo hardness, that also comes over the races. I think the pushing fits quite well, there are only a few small things, but there i feel quite comfortable. The competition kilometers will make it better."

For the return to the place of their great success had been zah. After the 24-year-old was stopped by a flu at the start of the season in ostersund and had to stay at home, she finished 16th and tenth in the individual races in tyrol. Everyone was happy, except dahlmeier.
