|An exciting mixed relay, the last competition of the2014-15 IBU Cup biathlon season, was held on Saturday in Canmore. Eleven teams battled for the final podium spots with the temperature around 4C, some sun, and clouds.
Team France with Anais Chevalier, Marine Bolliet, Baptiste Jouty and Antonin Guigonnat, used just 6 spares, less than any other squad, to finish on the first in 1:07:05.5. Austria with 9 spare rounds became second, snatching second place from the Italian team on the last loop, 11.3 seconds back. The Italians were in the lead until the last shooting stage, but lost not only first, but even second place; with 7 spares they finished third, 25.0 seconds behind.
Fourth place went to Germany, Norway fifth, and Russia finished sixth.|
