Summary

Martin Fourcade (FRA) shot flawlessly on his fourth and final shooting round and knew he had won the pursuit event, despite having a 2.5 km loop to ski. He turned to the crowd, and pumped his fists to signify his impending victory. Finishing with silver was Czech Ondřej Moravec, who began the pursuit in eighth place, 15 seconds behind, but earned his silver medal with a perfect shooting performance on the day. Fourcade's teammate Jean-Guillaume Beatrix finished with bronze, after starting 14th, and 39 seconds back. Finishing just out of the medals was Norwegian legend Ole Einar Bjørndalen, who started in first position but fell behind with three missed shots, and dropped back to fourth, only 1.7 seconds away from his 13th Olympic medal. The course proved challenging with a number of athletes falling in slushy conditions on the course's banking hairpin turns. The casualties included Canadian Jean-Philippe Le Guellec who had an early lead when he crashed.
