The IBU World Cup remained in Germany for the 5th competition of the season. The action took place at the Chiemgau Arena in Ruhpolding, deep in the Bavarian Alps and close to the border with Austria. This venue is famous for fast tracks and a sheltered shooting range, and conditions were ideal with 30cm of fresh snow on the course.
The IBU World Cup returned after the two week festive break and stopped at the DKB Ski Arena in Oberhof, central Germany. The ELEY sponsored French Team were hoping to continue their run of incredible achievements in 2016, but were expected to come under intense pressure from the German team.
