French biathletes claimed all three spots on the podium in the 7.5 km Sprint at the IBU World Championships, resembling the Soviet Union’s dominance in 1984 when they claimed the top four positions in the individual race during the inaugural Women’s World Championships in Chamonix.
Julia Simon took home the gold medal, delivering two clean shootings and securing her second individual world champion title with a fourth-fastest course time. She has now won an impressive tally of four WCH gold medals in her career, including relay victories.
Justine Braisaz-Bouchet secured silver, while Lou Jeanmonnot clinched bronze, rounding out a strong performance by French competitors. Sophie Chauveau also had a notable showing, finishing in fourth place. This impressive showing by French biathletes is a testament to their continued success and dominance in the sport.
