Darya Domracheva finished the season with a deserved victory in the mass start. The biathlete was able to finish first with a margin of 1.8 seconds.  

"The lag was not so big.On those last meters, I gathered my strength and showed what I could. I won two races in Tyumen (sprint and mass start). Great result! However, you can always do better. For example, in the overall standings I took third place, but I wanted first."  

Domracheva now plans to have a rest. 

"Now we go to Norway with Ole Einar Bjoerndalen, where we will rest, ski and spend happy family days."
