Ole Einar Bjørndalen was the defending champion and had won the event at the 2003 and 2005 World Championships. Heavily favored, his shooting let him down, as he missed three targets and would finish 12th. But the podium would be made up of well-known biathletes, all former Olympic medalists. Sven Fischer won the event, shooting cleanly, after having won a silver in the event in 2002. He had finished second in the event, behind Bjørndalen, at the 2005 World Championships, and was second in the 2004-05 World Cup standings. The runner-up was Halvard Hanevold, who had won the 20 km gold medal in 1998, and had won a bronze in that event earlier in Torino. The bronze went to Norway’s Frode Andresen, who had been second in this event in 1998. Originally fourth-place went to Austrian Wolfgang Perner, the 2002 bronze medalist, with his teammate Wolfgang Rottmann in 27th. But both would be disqualified and later banned for life by the IOC when they were found to have been involved in an elaborate blood doping scheme.
