Extreme conditions today. Johannes Boe had some bad luck. This is the turning point of the competition since Quentin achieves a perfect shot. Olympic Games already successful for him. He has really progressed in terms of skiing. A track and a race that suit him well. I’m impressed because achieving the individual/pursuit double is magnificent. Big hats off to Quentin.
