Norwegian biathletes made history at the World Championships in Nove Mesto, Czech Republic. In Johannes Thingnes Bö's 18th world title, the Scandinavians, who dominated this season, celebrated a five-fold success in the pursuit, after having already achieved a triple triumph in the sprint the day before.

Johannes Kühn, the best German, in 15th place

Defending champion Bö, second in the sprint, won on Sunday after three errors with 28.7 seconds ahead of sprint champion Sturla Holm Laegreid (2 errors). As in the sprint, Vetle Sjaastad Christiansen took bronze (3/+38.5 seconds). Behind them were Johannes Dale-Skjevdal and Tarjei Bö.

After their weak results in the sprint, the Germans had nothing to do with the first positions. Johannes Kühn (4 errors) was 15th, followed directly by Benedikt Doll (4) and Philipp Horn (3). Philipp Nawrath (5) crossed the finish line in 21st place.
