A total of 21 relays were submitted, of which the Swedes best managed the entry section. But Jessica Jislová also came out very well, she needed only one spare load on the firing range and she also managed to cross, so she overtook her fifth with just five seconds lost to the third Italian. “I would say I started well. When both items came to me very quickly, they had enough leg at the end, but I left everything on the track,” Jislová told ČT.
Charvátová was very fast on skis and came in third in the second section war, having only a small loss against Brorsson. Although he had to charge three times, he managed to score without visiting the penalty round. They kept pace with the Swedish relay thanks to a perfect shot from France and Italy.

Very strong for the race, Charvát came in fifth in the shootout, just four seconds behind Ukraine. But it burned completely, they only hit eight of the eight shots !!! The scarecrow of past responsibility reappeared, the Czech biathlete was completely expelled. “I’ve tried to be brave, but unfortunately I haven’t been successful at all,” he said disappointed.

Despite using most of the spare ammunition, he had to go through four penalty rounds. Charvátová tried to alleviate the pain at least a little on his skis and thanks to the second race he passed the tenth in his section, but was more than two minutes away from the main relays in France and Sweden.
Markéta Davidová did maximum endurance skiing in the third section, had the best time in skiing in his section and had a real chance to take the stick to the sixth before the second shooting element. The best of the selection didn’t even have three alternate rounds to clear all the standing goals. Despite the penalty shootout, he passed the ninth to finisher Eva Puskarčíková.

In the meantime, it was almost decided to fill the podium. The Öberg sisters won gold in Sweden, the silver went to France and the bronze went to Germany by the high-ranking Herrmann.
The last member of the Czech relay threw the bed clean and fast in less than twenty seconds. During the stand, he also fought for the fourth position, but he succumbed to the atmosphere and did not cope with the winds that were spinning in various ways. He was left with two goals, which was to turn 300 meters further and fall to 11th position at the finish line.
