Extreme weather events in Oberhof
As already in the past year, the organisers had to struggle with inclement weather in Oberhof. Snow was laboriously scraped together in the Thuringian Forest. In addition, fog and rain also arose during the event.
Competitions were also moved together from Friday to Sunday because of the holiday.
It was relatively quiet in the container village due to all these circumstances. Nevertheless, quite a few foot analyses and fittings with insoles (e.g. for Japan, Estonia and Slovenia) were able to be performed once again.
The athletes we take care of, Darya Domracheva (Belarus) and Kaisa Mäkäräinen (Finland), dominated the women's sprint and pursuit race.
Andrea Henkel from Thuringia said goodbye to her audience in Oberhof with a 4th place finish in the mass start. She will end her career after completion of this year's Olympic season.
