A total of 21 relays were presented, of which the Swedes best managed the introductory part. But Jessica Yislova also did very well, and needed a spare charge on the shooting range, and managed to run cross-country, so she passed the fifth with a loss of only five seconds to the third Italian. “I would say I started well. “When both objects came to me in a crazy light, they had enough of their legs until the end, but I left everything on the track,” Jislova told ČT.
Sharvatova was very fast on skis and reached third on the bed in the second half, with only a small loss from Brorson. Although he had to be charged three times, he succeeded without having to attend the penalty round. They followed in the footsteps of the Swedish relay thanks to a perfect shot from France and Italy.

Extremely strong to run, Sharwat arrived at the shooting range in fifth place, just four seconds behind Ukraine. But it absolutely burned, only eight targets were hit by eight shots !!! The scare of responsibility has reappeared from the past, the Czech biathlete was completely knocked out. “I tried to be brave, but unfortunately I did not succeed at all,” she said disappointed.

Despite the maximum use of spare ammunition, he had to go to four rounds of penalties. Sharvatova tried to alleviate the pain at least a little on skis and thanks to the second running time passed the tenth in her part, but was more than two minutes away from the dominant relays of France and Sweden.
Marketa Davidova did her maximum cross-country skiing in the third part, she had the best skis in her section and before the second shooting point she had a real chance to pull the baton to the sixth place. But the best of the national team did not even have three spare laps to clear all the targets while standing. Despite the penalty round, she finished ninth to Eva Puskarchikova in the final.

In the meantime, it was practically decided to fill the podium. The Aberg sisters led Sweden to gold, the silver went to France, and the bronze went to the great German Herman.
The last member of the Czech relay hit the bed cleanly and quickly, in less than twenty seconds. During the stand, she even competed for fourth place, but succumbed to the atmosphere and did not deal with the winds that swirled in various ways. He remained with two goals, which meant to circle 300 meters more and fall to 11th place in the finish.
