Italy kicked off the IBU Biathlon World Cup season with an impressive victory in the mixed team relay event in Oestersund.

The Azzurri finished third overall last year in the mixed relay standings, but this time around the quartet of Lisa Vittozzi, Dorothea Wierer, Lukas Hofer and Dominik Windisch were too strong for the rest of the field.

They stopped the clock in 1:05:56.1 after dominating on the shooting range with only nine spares between them.
