Julia Simon 3rd in the single mixed relay at the start of the season

On the podium from the opening race of the season: Julia Simon, ociated with Fabien Claude, took third place in the single mixed relay, Saturday in Östersund (Sweden), first stage of the Biathlon World Cup.

Simon, winner of the big crystal globe which rewards the best biathlete of the season last winter but opposite in the legal field to her partner in the French team Justine Braisaz-Bouchet in a case of bank card fraud, knows she is particularly expected. The 27-year-old Savoyard, very solid in prone shooting, signed two very convincing relays to allow France to climb to the third step of the podium, when Claude was in serious difficulty behind the rifle (two penalty rounds).

It was Sweden of Hanna Oeberg and Sebastian Samuelsson who won, ahead of Norway of Sturla Holm Laegreid and Juni Arnekleiv. Another mixed relay, with four ociated biathletes this time, Quentin Fillon Maillet, Emilien Jacquelin, Braisaz-Bouchet and Lou Jeanmonnot for the French team, follows in the afternoon.
