Johannes Thingnes Bø won gold in the men’s biathlon 10 km sprint, his third medal of Beijing 2022 and second gold medal, after gold in the mixed relay and a bronze in the 20 km individual. He stormed to Olympic victory with an incredible performance on the track. Bø made one mistake at the range, but won in 24:00.4, an incredible 25.5 seconds ahead of the 20 km individual gold medallist Quentin Fillon Maillet from France, who also had to go a penalty loop. Bronze went to Bø’s brother Tarjej. They became the first pair of siblings to share a podium in an individual biathlon event at the Winter Games. For Tarjei it was his first Olympic medal in an individual event, after winning gold (2010) and silver (2018) in the men’s 4x7.5km relay and gold in the 4x6 km mixed relay (2022).

Johannes Thingnes Bø was already in the lead after the first shooting round and held on to it despite his mistake on the shooting in the second loop. Fillon Maillet came from behind after missing one target at the first shooting but ran the fastest second and third loops. Maksim Tsvetkov was the best of the five competitors with clean shooting, but he missed out on a medal by just 1.7 seconds after finishing fourth. He was lying third after the second round of shooting but was overtaken by Tarjei Bø on the last loop. He was also beaten into the bronze medal position in the 20 km, by Bø’s brother Johannes Thingnes.
