Athlete of the week - Pokljuka - Tommaso Giacomel

After a high-strung, vote-for-vote battle with JT Boe, you, the fans, voted Tommaso Giacomel as your Athlete of the Pokljuka week. He received 5,085 (27.7%) of the votes.

Your nominees after the second stage of the BMW IBU World Cup were history-making Johannes Thingnes Boe (NOR), Elvira Oeberg (SWE), Tommaso Giacomel (ITA), and Niklas Hartweg and Amy Baserga (SUI). JT won in his fourth consecutive Sprint, a record. Oh, and his podium count after Pokljuka is at 100. Oeberg collected her first-ever Sprint-Pursuit double. Hartweg and Baserga scored a first-ever podium for Switzerland in Mixed Relays. And Giacomel had the best week of his life (so far), with sixth place in the Sprint, fifth in the Pursuit, and second in the Mixed Relays.
