Summary

Just as she had done in her previous two victories at Sochi 2014, Belorussian Darya Domracheva dominated the women's biathlon 12.5km mass start to win her third gold medal. Combined with her victories in the pursuit and individual, she became the most successful athlete from Belarus to compete in any Olympic Games, Winter or Summer. She outskied her competition, and missed just a single shot in the final shooting round. Czech Gabriela Soukalová took silver and had an opportunity to move into the lead when Domracheva missed her lone shot in the final round, but Soukalová also missed a shot to remain in second. She gave the Czech Republic its first Olympic biathlon medal, and finally put her on the podium after she had finished fourth in both the pursuit and individual at Sochi. Norway's Tiril Eckhoff won bronze after moving into third on the final lap and out-duelling German Evi Sachenbacher-Stehle down the stretch. Although this was initially the best German female biathlon result during Sochi, Sachenbacher-Stehle was later disqualified for a doping positive with methylhexaneamine, a stimulant.
