This event came down to skiing, sort of. The leading two skiers were Italy’s Nathalie Santer and Russia’s Anfisa Reztsova, but they both missed eight targets (out of 20), and placed 25th and 26th, respectively. Among the leaders, nobody shot particularly well, as all the top finishers had at least two shooting misses. But Canada’s Myriam Bédard had only two misses, and her sixth best ski time brought her the gold medal in 52:06.6. Belarussian Svetlana Paramygina was the 1993-94 World Cup leader and had the third fastest ski time, but her four misses dropped her to fourth place. Anne Briand-Bouthiaux, whose anchor leg in the 1992 relay had brought France a gold medal, won the silver medal, followed by Germany’s Uschi Disl. In the 1993-94 race, Paramygina would eventually place first, followed by Santer and Briand-Bouthiaux. Five days later Bédard would win the sprint race to win both individual gold medals in Lillehammer.
