Martin Fourcade, already assured of winning a 7th Biathlon World Cup in a row, won Saturday the pursuit of Tyumen.

The five-time Olympic champion, winner of his 9th race of the season and author of his 20th podium in 20 outings, offers at the same time the Little Globe of the pursuit, the 23rd of his career, after those of the Individual and the sprint.

While it remains only the title of the mass start to be distributed, Sunday, the French 29 years remains in contention for a fourth Grand Slam after those of 2013, 2016 and 2017 when he managed to lift the four small Individual globes in play.

In Tyumen, Fourcade, who made a small mistake in shooting, outstripped his Norwegian rival Johannes Boe and the Italian Lukas Hofer. This is the 74th victory of his career.
