French Martin Fourcade won the long-distance individual event, for his second gold of the Games, having won the men’s pursuit event before. He missed just one shot in the individual and outskiied the field by over 12 seconds. Finishing with silver was the surprising German Erik Lesser, who shot perfectly on the day, and won Germany its first biathlon medal of the Games. The bronze medal went to Russia’s birthday boy Yevgeny Garanichev, who brought Russia its first men’s biathlon medal of the Games, missing just one shot. A major pre-Sochi favorite, Norwegian Emil Hegle Svendsen fell short of the podium again with a seventh place finish, missing only one shot, but that 1 minute penalty took him out of what would have been an otherwise gold-medal performance. Svendsen struggled throughout Sochi, although he would win the 15 km mass start gold, but it was later revealed he was ill with a respiratory disorder during the Winter Olympics.
