Karolin Horchler, Denise Herrmann, Vanessa Hinz and Franziska Hildebrand came in twelfth after a disappointing race. The Hochfilzen relay won Norway ahead of Russia and Switzerland.

Women's biathlon - Herrmann with a desolate standing shooting:

Karolin Horchler started the race for Germany and showed stable performance. It stayed flawless when lying down, it was competitive on the cross-country trail and the two reloads in the standing position were not difficult.

In the top group, Horchler passed on to Denise Herrmann. The race started very well for the world champion.

She was fast on the cross-country track, as usual, she was flawless when lying. As the leader, she went to the standing stop, then the drama started.

Herrmann made six mistakes and had to make three penalties, so the race was over for the German relay.

That was a miserable attack. Maybe I started too quickly, said a self-critical Herrmann at the finish.

Women's biathlon - Big backlog for the German relay:

Vanessa Hinz was the third German on the track, but she also had to reload a total of four times, the DSV quartet continued to fall behind.

The runner-up Franziska Hildebrand remained faultless when lying down, but she also shot three mistakes when standing.

The German team crossed the finish line more than three minutes behind. At the front, the Russian Ekatarina Yurlova-Percht took the lead after the last shooting.

But the Norwegian Marte Olsbu Roseland put in a furious final round and overtook the Russian relay. 

The last women's race in Hochfilzen will take place on Sunday, from 11:30 a.m. the chase will start. is included in the live ticker.

Before the race: Hello and welcome to the live ticker at for the biathlon in Hochfilzen. Today there are two competitions on the program.

At Hochfilzen's destination, there was helplessness and bewilderment. After the worst result in the history of the German biathlon women, the DSV biathletes were disappointed.

No German starter reached the points in the victory of the overall World Cup leader Dorothea Wierer, Karolin Horchler even missed the qualification for the pursuer on Sunday.

Women's biathlon - a relay from Östersund as a motivator:

Denise Herrmann, Franziska Preuss, Vanessa Hinz and Horchler had big problems at the shooting range, Anna Weidel and Franziska Hildebrand were not competitive on the Hochfilzen trail.

Besides, the German women had to struggle with material problems, the entire team missed the start in Hochfilzen.

Already on Saturday, the DSV women have Chane to make amends. Confidence is set to return with the relay, the prospects are passable despite Friday's debacle.

Women's biathlon - the German line-up for the relay:

The quartet Karolin Horchler, Denise Herrmann, Vanessa Hinz and Franziska Hildebrand will tackle the season.

In the first season of the 2019/20 World Cup in biathlon, the DSV quartet Herrmann, Preuss, Hinz and Horchler in Östersund showed that it is quite competitive.

Germany finished fourth, just 15 seconds behind the victorious Norwegians. From 11:30 a.m., it is important to leave the sprint behind and find your way back on track through the relay.

Here you can find out how you can watch all races from Hochfilzen on TV, live ticker and Livestream.

Men's biathlon - With strong mileage on the hunt for Boe:

For the German men, the diary in biathlon provides the contrary program. Before the relay starts on Sunday, the pursuer is on Saturday.

The DSV athletes take the backlog from the sprint onto the track. Sprint winner Johannes Thingnes Boe, who also leads the overall World Cup, will be hunted.

From a German point of view, all runners are in good shape, especially Benedikt Doll and Johannes Kühn showed strong performances.

If the German men also increase at the shooting range, a top position is still possible with the pursuer. 

With Erik Lesser, after the 70th place in the sprint, it was not enough for the qualification for the pursuer. The chase starts at 2:55 p.m., is included in the live ticker.
