Dhe last season started, without exaggeration, disastrously for biathlon veteran Erik Lesser (32). It went on difficult, he, the 2014 Olympic runner-up and 2015 world champion, had to go to the second-rate IBU Cup, but still recommended himself there for the World Cup and celebrated a happy ending with two relay medals. This winter he got off to a brilliant start: podium at the start. It didn’t go on like this, but he was miles away from tenth place in the World Cup exactly a year ago.
WORLD: Mr. Lesser, you have to explain that to me. It is always easy to say that you have to flip the switch. But the new serenity that you mentioned recently is not suddenly just around the corner. How does it work?
