Quentin Fillon Maillet of France won the men’s biathlon pursuit for his fourth medal and second gold medal at Beijing 2022. He started as favourite, having won four of five pursuit races in the 2021/22 season. The Beijing race took place in difficult weather conditions, but Fillon Maillet made no mistakes in heavy snowfall, bitterly cold temperatures (-14°C), and icy winds in the Zhangjiakou National Biathlon Centre.

The silver medal went to Tarjei Bø (+28.6 seconds), and bronze went to Eduard Latypov (+35.3 seconds), both with one penalty. Latypov was ahead of Bø for most of the race but lost 15.9 seconds on the last loop and had to settle for bronze.

Tarjei’s brother, Johannes Thingnes Bø, who started with a comfortable lead of 41.0 seconds after the sprint, experienced an unfortunate race. In his third round of shooting, he had the worst of the conditions. In total, the 28-year-old went into the penalty loop seven times (0-2-3-2). However, because of his outstanding skiing speed, Bø still finished fifth. None of the other top six biathletes missed more than one target.

Veteran Lukas Hofer was the only other athlete other than Fillon Maillet with a clear shooting performance, but eventually placed fourth, losing the medal due to slowing down on the track in the last third of the race.
