Summary

The event was delayed for two days due to foggy conditions that made shooting impossible. The pre-Sochi favorite for multiple biathlon medals was Norway’s Emil Hegle Svendsen. Suffering from a respiratory disorder throughout the Olympics, this would be his only individual gold medal, which he won in a photo finish over France’s Martin Fourcade. The two leaders were even nearing the end of the final lap, but Svendsen moved ahead as he came to the finish. In an inexplicable move, Svendsen began to celebrate before crossing the line, and while he did so, Fourcade churned out a final effort and reached his ski forward to record the same time as the Norwegian, but the photo finish confirmed that Svendsen had won gold. Czech Ondřej Moravec claimed his second biathlon medal in Sochi and took bronze.
