The Germans were favored although Italy had won the 1993 World Championship, with Russia second, and Germany third. But it would turn out to be an easy victory for the Germans. They led on the opening leg, with Belarus second and Poland third, while Italy was fifth and Russia seventh. On the second leg, Germany increased its lead to 1:35 with France second, Italy third, and Russia stuck in sixth. But the favorites came on in the third leg, with Germany leading, although Italy, in second, closed the gap to just over a minute, and Russia moved up to third. Italy had Andreas Zingerle, the 1993 World Champion at 20K, as its anchor, and had high expectations, but he missed three targets on his leg, dropping Italy back to sixth place. Russia held on for the silver behind Germany, while France moved up for the bronze medal.
