Unchallenged victory for Germany’s Relay in women’s competition
Just like at the last World Championships, Germany was triumphant in the women’s relay competition. Vanessa Hinz, Franziska Hildebrand, Maren Hammerschmidt and Laura Dahlmeier have been leading Olympic Champion, Ukraine by 44.9 seconds and France by 1:04.5 minutes.
There was no Austrian entry in the final competition of Hochfilzen. After Lisa Theresa Hauser waived her start in pursuit competition, Dunja Zdouc had also had to pass on a start the next day due to a cold.
