The Frenchwoman Lou Jeanmonnot won the last mass start of the season on Sunday in Canmore (Canada), which ends with the victory in the general classification of the Biathlon World Cup for the Italian Lisa Vittozzi.

Thanks to this victory, her fourth of the winter, Jeanmonnot (25 years old) won the small globe of the specialty to the detriment of Julia Simon and even finished runner-up to Vittozzi, victorious for the first time of the big crystal globe of N .1 world (1,068 points against 1,091).

Author of the sprint-pursuit double on Thursday and Saturday, which allowed her to seize the yellow bib as leader of the general classification at the expense of the Norwegian Ingrid Tandrevold, Vittozzi only ranked 21st on Sunday after five shooting errors, almost 2 min.

But as Tandrevold, the only one who could still deprive her of the big globe, did not do better than eighth (3 faults, 50.2), the 29-year-old Italian is crowned for the first time in her career. “It’s incredible, there are so many emotions, I’m really proud,” breathed Vittozzi with tears in his eyes at the microphone of the L’Equipe channel.

In front, Jeanmonnot won with an 11 sec 9/10th lead over the German Janina Hettich-Walz, who like her scored a 19 out of 20 in shooting. With a flawless performance, Guigonnat finished third at 15 sec 8/10, ahead of another Frenchwoman, Justine Braisaz-Bouchet, fourth despite four missed targets, at 22 sec 1/10.
