With his victory in the men’s 10 km sprint on 8 February, Norwegian Ole Einar Bjørndalen cemented his status as the best biathlete the world has ever seen. His 12th Olympic medal shared the title for most Winter Olympic medals with retired cross-country skier Bjørn Dæhlie, also from Norway. He was near perfect with his shooting and skied well, as Bjørndalen missed just one shot during the standing round, and recorded a brilliant final lap that brought him from fifth to first place. Dominik Landertinger from Austria won silver, his first Olympic medal in an individual distance. He previously had won a silver medal in the men’s relay at Vancouver in 2010. Winning the bronze medal was Czech Jaroslav Soukup in a performance that many considered more surprising than Bjørndalen’s efforts. Before the race, Soukup’s best finish in the sprint in international competition was 27th at the 2013 World Championships. Also surprising were several of the names missing from the podium, including Frenchman Martin Fourcade, who finished sixth, and Norwegian Emil Hegle Svendsen, who placed ninth.
