Tiril Eckhoff a few days ago left Annecy, and went home to Norway.
Today IBU published an official start-list (yesterday was predictable), and four more biathletes refused to race.
Denise Herrmann, Anais Bescond, Franziska Preuss and Linn Persson. They will replaced by Daria Blashko, Ivona Fialkova, Fyuko Tachizaki, Stina Nilsson and Yuliya Dzhima.
Race start at 12:45
