Early in the day on Tuesday, March 14, Marte Olsbu Røiseland announced her retirement. Biathlon king Ole Einar Bjørndalen sends Marte, along with her mascot Braute, a greeting.
The World Cup in Holmenkollen, which takes place March 16-19, will be Mare's last race and her farewell to biathlon. The audience in Holmenkollen will have the honor of cheering her on one last time, on home ground. Ole Einar Bjørndalen is keen that Marte gets a proper end to her career, during the World Cup in Biathlon at Holmenkollen.
So, Marte has to win the joint start. Then I am satisfied
with the season for this year, says Ole Einar Bjørndalen
The Biathlon World Cup is from Thursday, March 16 to Sunday, March 19, in Holmenkollen. You can see the program for the Biathlon World Cup here.
During her long career, Marte Olsbu Røiseland has won several golds, both in the Olympics and the World Championships. Marte has three Olympic golds and 13 World Cup golds under her belt. Her latest medal is from the World Cup in Oberhof, where she managed to win three medals in a comeback against all odds. With these achievements, she has helped to promote Norwegian biathlon and been a good role model.
We will miss you so much for what you have contributed to Norwegian biathlon, says a proud Ole Einar Bjørndalen
