The race, which was to be held on Wednesday, February 14, was cancelled due to strong winds. International biathlon Union reported that the wind gusts reach the speed of 15 m/s, and under these conditions, the race was decided not to pursue.

Competition postponed to February 15 — both individual races, male and female, will take place in one day. Women will start at 11:15 Moscow time, and men at 14:30.

In the women’s race Russia will be represented by two women, Uliana Kaisheva and Tatiana Akimova. Both athletes claimed medals in the sport .
