After 23rd place on Thursday, Karoline Erdal took real revenge on Saturday: With ten flashes straight down and good speed on the course, she won the sprint in the IBU Cup in Arber by a good margin.

Ragnhild Femsteinevik, who is making her first appearance internationally since the IBU Cup at Sjusjøen in December, was second best Norwegian in the sprint on Saturday. Despite a total of four misses, two lying down and two standing up, she finished 12th, just over a minute behind Erdal.

In total, five of the six Norwegians were among the top 15 in the sprint on Saturday.
