She became the first ever Austrian Biathlon World Cup gold winner, with Wolfgang Rottmann in 2000 in the individual race for men and Dominik Landertinger in 2009 in the mass start as well, only two.

“It’s unbelievable, so beautiful. Four zero was the basic requirement today, and that I could still enjoy it on the final lap … all the staff stood by the track and just celebrated me on my face, it’s unbelievable what’s going on, “said Lisa Hauser, who was visibly moved.

“Everything is still so unreal”

“Now I’m slowly starting to realize what happened there, but it’s still so unreal. Now it’s all so early, I can’t really believe what happened there. Now I’m world champion “It’s just so unbelievably beautiful and I’m having such fun. I’ll enjoy it now.”

In Slovenia, the Tyrolean had already won silver in the mixed relay and in the pursuit. Afterwards, Simon Eder also competed in the mass start.
