The final runner Grond made up a few places on the long, slightly uphill home straight and only had to let the two top sprinters Richard Jouve and Federico Pellegrino go. Grond had taken over from Riebli in second place and initially fell back slightly. The two runners each reeled off three times 1.2 km.

Obwaldner Riebli, third in the sprint on Saturday, and Bündner Grond, also a finalist the day before, are only the second Swiss men’s duo to make it onto the podium in this discipline. Jovian Hediger and Roman Furger made their debut in the team sprint, which has been held in the World Cup since 1995/1996, two years ago in Ulricehamn.
