First World Cup podium for Belarus’ ChepelinMINSK, 2 December (BelTA) – Vladimir Chepelin of Belarus claimed his first ever World Cup medal, finishing third in the Men’s 20K Individual at the BMW IBU World Cup Biathlon 1 in Ostersund, Sweden on 1 December.

The men faced the same gusty winds during the race as the women did two days ago. The bad weather, however, did not prevent the favorites from showing their best. France’s Martin Fourcade dominated the Men’s 20K Individual race, winning in 51:33.8, despite two penalties. Norway’s Johannes Thingnes Boe matched Fourcade at the shooting range, but finished second, 29.5 seconds back.
