The men’s 10 km sprint biathlon competition of the PyeongChang 2018 Olympics was held on 11 February 2018 at the Alpensia Biathlon Centre. The event was won surprisingly by German Arnd Peiffer, with Czech Michal Krčmář taking silver and Italian Dominik Windisch bronze. Both Peiffer and Krčmář hit all their targets, the same as Olli Hiidensalo from Finland and Ukraine Dmytro Pidruchniy, who finished 19th and 21st, respectively. Favored Martin Fourcade from France missed three targets and came in a disappointing eighth. Even worse was Norwegian star Johannes Thingnes Bø, who missed four targets and finishing 31st. The competition was influenced by heavy winds and very cold weather with a temperature around -12º C.
