In foggy Oslo, Hanna Oeberg and Marte Olsbu Roeiseland both shot 19 for 20 despite poor visibility, but the Swede crossed the finish line 22 seconds ahead. Anaïs Chevalier-Bouchet, with three missed targets, exited the range fourth after the last shot from a standstill, but returned to the podium on the last lap overtaking German Hanna Kebinger, finally fourth.
