Belarus' Nadezhda Skardino won the Small Crystal Globe as the best biathlete judging by the results of individual races of the season.

In German Ruhpolding, the Belarusian took seventh place on January 11.  At a stage in Sweden's Ostersund she earlier celebrated a victory.

Skardino thus became the best after these races.

Italian Dorothea Wierer won the January 11 individual race. Also in the top three were Finnish Kaisa Mäkäräinen and Canadian Rosanna Crawford.

Five Belarusians took part in this race. Three of them eventually entered the top 11. Daria Domracheva was 6th, Nadezhda Skardino 7th, and Irina Krivko 11th.
