Summary

Moments after her victory in the women's 15km individual, and becoming the first athlete from Belarus to win multiple gold medals at an Olympic Winter Games, [Darya Domracheva] looked into a television camera and sent a simple message out to the world, “Happy Valentine's Day,” as she smiled and waved her hands to the world-wide TV audience. Switzerland’s [Selina Gasparin] took silver, while Domracheva’s Belorussian teammate [Nadezhda Skardino] finished third.

Domracheva’s victory was her second gold medal at Sochi 2014, following her success in the 10km pursuit. The 27-year-old's performance inspired Skardino, whose bronze medal gave Belarus a first Winter Olympic podium with two athletes on it. Gasparin's silver was Switzerland's first ever Olympic medal in biathlon. Many of the pre-race favorites disappointed, including Czech [Gabriela Soukalová], Norway’s [Tora Berger], Finn [Kaisa Mäkäräinen], and the German biathletes as a group.
