The winner of the women’s sprint, held eight days before this event, was Anfisa Reztsova of the Unified Team. A former Olympic cross-country skier, she also posted the fastest ski time in this event, more than a minute ahead of France’s Anne Briand-Bouthiaux, but Reztsova’s nine missed targets out of 20, which was worse than all but three biathletes in the event, dropped her down to 26th place. But no biathlete shot cleanly in the 15 km. The winner was German Antje Misersky, who had only the eighth best skiing time, but missed only one target to win the gold medal. Misersky had been second to Reztsova in the sprint. France’s Delphine Heymann-Burlet was on target for the gold medal until the final shooting round, when she missed two shots, and dropped back to sixth despite the third best ski time. The bronze medal went to Canada’s Myriam Bédard, which was a surprise and was Canada’s first ever Nordic medal at the Winter Olympics.
