Norwegian Johannes Thingnes Bø won the classical distance 20 km individual, the oldest event in biathlon. In contrast to the other events, in the 20 km the biathletes received penalty times of one minute per missed target instead of running penalty loops. All competitors also had to shoot in the following order: prone / standing / prone / standing. Bø missed two targets, but was even faster on the track than Jakov Fak from Slovenia and Austrian Dominik Landertinger, who hit all their targets. Both had not been on the list of potential medal winners before the race and surprised with their performance. Favored Martin Fourcade missed two targets and seemed a bit tired, finally finishing fifth.
