It was the 3rd leg of women’s relay and Wolfgang Pichler urges Irinia Starykh to go faster and to pass over Laura Dahlmeier. Suddenly Ricco Groß shouts angrily at Pichler who is answering back in same manner. Ricco Groß thought that Pichler stepped in front of Dahlmeier and blocked her way…! “He left litle space for me to cross” said Dahlmeier afterwards.
According to info later both men shake hands and made peace after race has ended. Anyhow Russia’s victory was clean and clear today so no complaints from anyone for the result.
