As with the men's mass start title race, the women's category also consists of five possible contenders, but out of the five four are of Germany's elite
Martina Glagow of Germany - who won Thursday's sprint but could not follow it up in the pursuit on Saturday and eventually finished seventh - tops the mass start standings with 155 points.
Kati Wilhelm - who prior to the weekend's events secured the overall title and cristal globe - is second just 11 points behind.
Uschi Disl is third on 141, while Andrea Henkel occupies fourth on 128 points.
The only non-German to be in contention for the Mass start globe is Olena Zubrilova of Belarus.
Zubrilova is on 115 points and will need a minor miracle to win the Globe considering the form Wilhelm, Glagow and Disl have displayed recently
