The women’s 7.5 km sprint event was held on 10 February at the Alpensia Biathlon Centre as the first biathlon event of this Winter Olympics. Germany’s Laura Dahlmeier won the event, shooting cleanly, finishing 24.2 seconds ahead of Norway’s Marte Olsbu, and 25.8 seconds ahead of the bronze medalist, Czech biathlete Veronika Vítková. Anastasia Kuzmina was the fastest runner on the track, but missed three targets and finished 13th. Pre-race favorites Darya Domracheva of Belarus missed two targets to finish ninth, and Finland’s Kaisa Mäkäräinen struggled, missing three targets and was 25th. Mäkäräinen won the seasonal World Cup only a few weeks after the Olympics. The race saw only three out of 87 competitiors shoot cleanly. The competition was run under heavy winds and very cold weather with the temperature at -8º C.
