Ruhpolding 20. Jan. 2016 – First there was no snow, then mountains of it, and athletes who came from behind to change the tide in a race thought to be lost, and on top of that, three extra days of races.

Even Martin Fourcade and Evgeniy Garanichev could not catch up with the 27 year old German in a nerve wracking final stretch. Probably no one will ask him the tiresome World Championships question any longer.
