Hakkinen takes 9th in World Cup pursuit
Kasilof biathlete Jay Hakkinen finished ninth in a 12.5-kilometer World Cup pursuit on Saturday in Hochfilzen, Austria.
“This is a great day for me and I’m really happy to be back in the top 10,” Hakkinen said in a released statement. “It feels like it’s been awhile.”
The last time Hakkinen got into the top 10 in a World Cup race was during the 2007-08 season, when he finished ninth in a 20-kilometer individual at Kontiolahti, Finland.
