Antholz – The German women’s biathlon team has to endure a heavy setback. Franziska Preuss announced the early end of the season after the competitions in Antholz. This is due to health problems. The former third overall in the World Cup had achieved the norm for a season highlight before Christmas, but after another turn-of-the-year setback in the comeback in Antholz, she failed to get higher than 38th and 34th places. Meanwhile, Preuss will also miss the next World Cup at home in Oberhof.

End of season for biathlete Fraziska Preuss: not the first health setback

“After the two races at Antholz, I made the decision to end the season early.
In my current state of health, I simply cannot do the work that would be necessary to help our team at the World Cup in Oberhof,” Preuss said on his Instagram account. He will take a break for the time being to recover both physical and physical strength like mentally.

In the past, Preuss has been plagued by health problems. Time must now also be used to investigate the causes. There is no alternative to this step, not even for his future career. “But if I want to continue my competitive sports career at a world-class level again, and I want to do it 100 percent, I have to listen to my body now and do everything I can to finally get properly and permanently healthy again.” . said Preuss in conclusion.

The German Ski Association was also saddened by the failure. With the 2015 world relay champion, “an important pillar” is gone, and that’s “just bitter,” added DSV sports director Felix Bitterling: “Ultimately, though, it’s the only sensible decision in the actual situation”. (nki/sid)
