March 20, 2016, 9:21 a.m. (ET)


KHANTY-MANSIYSK, Russia (March 20, 2016) - Due to strong, gusty winds, the competition jury decided to cancel Sunday's mass start competitions for security reasons at the BMW IBU World Cup 9 in Khanty-Mansiysk.

On the final competition day, the women's mass start race was initially postponed, but later the decision was made to cancel both the men's and women's competitions due to safety reasons. A light pole on the shooting range was knocked over by the strong winds and soon thereafter athletes, spectators and staff were told to leave the stadium for security reasons.

This brings and end to the 2015-16 World Cup season. The final placements in the World Cup standings can be found below.
