Quentin Fillon Maillet of France celebrated victory in the classical biathlon 20 km individual race by winning his second medal of the Beijing 2022 Olympics, adding gold to the silver he won in the mixed relay. The individual silver went to Anton Smolski of Belarus, while the pre-race favourite and defending champion, Norway’s Johannes Thingnes Bø, held on to win the bronze medal.

Bø, already decorated with gold in the mixed relay, started the 20 km race with bib number two and set the target time for the competition. The Norwegian made two mistakes for a penalty of two additional minutes, so he had to hope for mistakes from the co-favourites. Fillon Maillet also cleared 18 targets, but was 31.1 seconds faster than Bø on the course. The Norwegian had to move down one more place because Smolski (+14.8 s) was one of only two starters with zero shooting penalties even though he had a significantly slower skiing time.

The only other biathlete with five clear shooting rounds, other than Smolski, was Vladislav Kireyev from Kazakhstan who finished 25th. Scott Gow was a surprise in fifth place, his second-best career finish after a fourth in the Östersund individual in the beginning of the 2021/22 season.
