Laura Dahlmeier shot cleanly on the last stage of the women's 4x6 kilometres relay to secure the gold medal for Germany at the Biathlon World Championships in Kontiolahti.
The German quartet, which also included Franziska Hildebrand, Franziska Preuss and Vanessa Hinz, clocked a time of 1 hour 11min 54.60sec to top the 25-team field with six spare rounds.
The silver medal went to the French foursome of Anais Bescond, Enora Latuilliere, Justine Braisaz and Marie Dorin Habert, who finished 1:00.30 off the pace with one penalty and nine spares.
Italy's team, comprising Lisa Vittozzi, Karin Oberhofer, Nicole Gontier and Dorothea Wierer, claimed the bronze medal in 1:13:00.70 with nine spares.
Hinz established Germany's lead in the third leg before Dahlmeier shot clean in prone and sealed victory with five more fast shots.
"It was dream of all of us; we worked hard it is a perfect day for us," said Dahlmeier after her 10-for-10.
Dorin Habert claimed her fourth medal of the Championships having skipped the 15km individual race on Wednesday (March 11).
"It was a good choice to not start the individual because it was the goal to get a medal today," said the Frenchwoman.
"I think it worked out well."
The two-time Olympic medallist triumphed in the 10km pursuit on Sunday (March 8) to add to her gold medal in the 7.5km and silver in the mixed relay.
The action in Kontiolahti continues tomorrow with the men's 4x7.5km relay.
