The clear favorites for the men’s relay event were the Norwegians and the Germans, but Sweden surprised with an excellent race and won easily ahead of Norway. Sweden had no penalties and used only 7 spare rounds in the shooting. Sweden never led on the first three legs, opening in fifth place, but used fast legs by their third and fourth runners, Sebastian Samuelsson and Fredrik Lindström, to pull ahead of Norway by almost a minute. Germany’s Erik Lesser opened in the lead, but the Czech Republic led after the second leg, and Johannes Thingnes Bø put the Norwegians ahead after three legs. The German quartet had to run three penalty loops and took 10 extra shots, finishing 2:07.1 minutes behind the Swedes, but saved the bronze ahead of Austria, as France placed fifth.
