IBU Awards Crystal Globe 2013/2014 to Tora Berger and Kaisa Makarainen

After Olga Zaitseva was disqualified for doping, results last races season 13/14 results were revised, and Tora Berger was ahead Kaisa Makarainen. IBU decided didn't take the victory away from the Kaisa, but to make the second official winner - Tora Berger.

Tora Berger: «This is a fair and good decision for both of us. I would have felt really bad if Kaisa had to give back her Crystal Globe. I remember the fight for the overall title with Kaisa very well and she was the strongest in the last competitions. It would have been nice to win the title in the last competition of my career on that day but I was very happy with my career overall. It is very difficult for me to say how I feel about winning my second Crystal Globe for the Total Score now since so much time has passed since then.»

Kaisa Makarainen: «I am really happy with this decision that I can keep my Crystal Globe and still be the Total Score winner 2013/2014. It is the fairest solution to award two Globes and I am very happy for Tora. Of course, winning the Globe seven years later is not the same as winning it on the competition day and she didn’t get all the benefits that come with such a big win. It is always disappointing to hear about a doping offence of a competitor, which causes a recalculation of results since this can never bring back the real circumstances of the actual competition. I just hope not to go through this again and wish that the present and future of our sport is doping-free and that we can trust the results which we see on the competition day.»

The award ceremony will be at one of the World Cup events.
