The 25-year-old Hennig and the one year older Carl, nominated for Katherine Sauerbrey as a replacement woman short-term, won on Wednesday in Chinese Zhangjiakou sensational in front of Sweden and Russia – and just on the birthday of Peter’s choice. “That’s so cool, a better birthday present does not exist,” the national coach, which was 52 years old on Wednesday, yelled in the team radio. For his two protégés it was already the second precious metal in the title struggles and the very large triumph. Last Saturday they had won together with Sauerbrey and Sofie Krehl Silver with the season.
Carl thus contributed significantly to the two large and unexpected medal screens of German trails-asse in these winter games. In 2018 in Pyeongchang, the cross-country skiers had remained without any medal, in 2014 in Sochi had given Bronze for the Women Season with Nicole Fessel, Stefanie Böhler, Claudia Nystad and Denise Herrmann, who won bronze today with the biathlon season today.

Brugger loses the ski – fifth gold for Kläbo
