On Saturday, February 17, the women's relay took place at the 2024 Biathlon World Championships in Nove Mesto, Czech Republic. SSPDaily told more about relays and sprints for women this year.

Iryna Petrenko, Yulia Dzhyma, Anastasia Merkushyna, and Khrystyna Dmytrenko ran for the Ukrainian national team, finishing in fifth place.

At the starting stage, Petrenko flawlessly practiced prone shooting and left the firing line in sixth position. She used one extra round in the standing position and finished seventh, and passed the baton to the tenth place, 48 seconds behind the leader, the French team.

In the second stage, Dzhyma shot perfectly in the prone and pulled the Blue and Yellows to seventh place. Yulia made one mistake on the rack and remained seventh. She also passed the baton in seventh place, 43 seconds behind the sensational leader, the Estonian team.

In the third stage, Merkushyna was forced to use two additional rounds of ammunition in the prone shooting and finished eighth. Anastasia made three mistakes in the rack, narrowly avoiding the penalty circle, and finished in seventh place. The Ukrainian also passed the baton in seventh place, losing 1 minute and 30 seconds to the leader, France.

In the final stage, Dmytrenko shot quickly and accurately from the prone position and lifted Ukraine to sixth place. On the rack in a fierce wind, Khrystyna used three extra rounds to close the last target. However, this did not prevent her from moving up to fifth place after the firing line and maintaining it until the finish. The Blue and Yellows lagged behind the winner by 2 minutes and 9 seconds.

France became the world champion in the women's relay, Sweden won silver, and Germany won bronze.

It should be noted that the fifth place is Ukraine's best result in three years in the women's relay at the Biathlon World Championships. It is also the second top-5 finish this season (after the World Cup in Ruhpolding).
