The competition of the men`s mass start in Oberhof is over. In addition to the ladies, the men now had to challenge the 15 kilometers and once again, it was interesting to watch this anual world class competition in Thuringia.

The favorite has actually been clear – We’re talking about Ole Einar Bjoerndalen. He has outclassed the competition once again. On the second and third place he was followed by the Americans Tim Burke an Poland`s Ace Tomasz Sikora.

Burke can thus take the lead in the overall World Cup title. But now even a few words about the Germans today. Youngster Arnd Peiffer oviously managed the best place possible for him and finished 5th. Unfortunately, champion Michael Greis had some bad luck when shooting, and therefore had to be content with the 11th place.

The professional football team of the state – FC Carl Zeiss Jena – has to drop many important decisions these days. The search for a new coach to lead the team through Germany`s 2nd Division hasn`t been successful yet. By today, the odds give former Bundesliga player Valdas Ivanauskas some good chances.

On the other hand, there`s the deal with russia`s Alpha Investment Group. The admission for the new investor won`t be easy due to doubts of the german football league (DFL), which will decide about the 5 Mio. Euro donation next monday.
