Italian biathlon star Dorothea Wierer gets hot as her former coach Patrick Oberegger moves to Norwegian Tiril Eckhoff camp.
On Wednesday, Tirik Eckhoff took the lead in the overall biathlon World Cup. One reason for the good mood is shooting coach Patrick Oberegger, who coached Dorothea Wierer last season.
However, last year’s World Cup winner feels cheated. He opened the case to the Norwegian NRK.
– Our relationship is broken. I don’t need to talk to her anymore. It’s over, he said.

“He wasn’t honest”
According to Wierer, Oberegger rattled behind the Italians. The two have seen each other in the competition area, but they haven’t spoken to each other.
– She wasn’t honest with me, so it’s better to break all contacts. I have new coaches and new thinking, Wierer said.

Oberegger said the break was not born from his side.
– I have the utmost respect for him and his work. However, I will now focus on Norwegian athletes.
NRK commentator Emil Hegle Svendsen wasn’t too convinced about Wierer’s attitude towards his old coach.
– It hurts him if he’s bitter. And it’s good for Norway, Svendsen said.
