The event went off despite snowfall covering the Zhangjiakou Mountain Venue and creating challenging conditions for the athletes.
Ingrid Landmark Tandrevold of Norway struggled toward the end of the race, falling out of third place as she fought her way to the finish line before collapsing and receiving treatment from the medical staff. Tandrevold is conscious and recouping, the Norwegian team doctor reported to the BMW IBU World Cup Biathlon.
Røiseland topped the podium with a time of 34:46.9, while Sweden’s Elvira Oeberg clocked in at 1:36.5 for silver. Tiril Eckhoff of Norway took home bronze to round out the podium.
