In the heart of the IBU World Championships Biathlon in Nove Mesto, Lisa Vittozzi has written an unforgettable page in sports history, claiming her first Individual gold, a medal that shines for the exceptional demonstration of talent and tenacity.

Her performance was a hymn to perfection: flawless at the shooting range hitting 20/20 and simply majestic on skis with the third fastest overall time, Lisa dominated the Women 15km Individual, turning every challenge into a springboard to success. Faced with a technical hiccup that could have shaken her spirit, she instead showed ironclad concentration, overcoming formidable opponents and leaving even the favored French in her wake.

"I am incredibly proud of myself," Lisa shared, reflecting on how she turned a past mistake into a lesson of strength and calm, securing gold with a decisive change of pace. This Medal comes after a series of notable performances, including a Silver in the Individual at the Östersund World Championships in Sweden in 2019 and a Bronze last year in Oberhof, Germany, where a minor error on the last target limited her success.

These victories mark a historic moment for Italy in biathlon, consolidating the Azzurri Spirit at the top of this sport that blends endurance, precision, and strategy.

Lisa's triumph in Nove Mesto transcends the personal: it becomes a beacon of inspiration, a powerful message that through dedication, meticulous preparation, and indomitable spirit, the greatest dreams can become reality. Lisa Vittozzi is not just a world champion; she is a symbol of excellence and determination, inviting each of us never to give up, to overcome obstacles, and to aim ever higher. Her golden victory in Nove Mesto is a hymn to possibility, an invitation to believe in the inexhaustible potential of every athlete and every person.
