Soukalova in Yellow and Red hit all five targets on Friday's sprint competition. She rushed so much, dropped a pole, lost the precious second. It caused the difference between the first and second. She was very satisfied with the 2nd result nevertheless.
And one more 2nd place at women pursuit competition, too. She was on front during the whole race, until last km when Laura Dahlmeier went forward so strong and Gabi could not follow her.
