Dorothea Wierer continues career

Dorothea Wierer has announced that she intends to continue her biathlon career until the Olympic Winter Games Milano Cortina 2026.

The two-time Total Score Winner addressed her sports future in a press conference organised by FISI on Wednesday afternoon.

"It would have been a shame to end a part of my life in this way, not having been able to give my 100%, and I want to go on until the Olympics in Milano Cortina".

After struggling with sickness throughout the past winter, Wierer ended her season prematurely after the World Championships in Nove Mesto na Morave and used the past two months to recover. Now all eyes are set on the upcoming season and the home Olympic Winter Games in Milano Cortina 2026, with the biathlon competitions taking place in her home stadium of Antholz.

"It was not an easy choice because there are many sacrifices to make, but I have already planned my trainings and I started with my group and people I trust."
