History-makers Fourcade and Dahlmeier crowned Olympic pursuit champions at Pyeongchang 2018

Fourcade holds nerve to defend Olympic biathlon pursuit title

Laura Dahlmeier claims second biathlon gold

PyeongChang 2018Laura Dahlmeier took her second and Germany's fourth gold medal of PyeongChang 2018, as she powered to victory in a gruelling women's biathlon 10km pursuit on 12 February, finishing 29.4 seconds clear of the chasing pack.

This makes her the first female biathlete to win the sprint and pursuit double at the same Olympics.

Dahlmeier, who bagged women's 7.5km sprint gold last Saturday, clocked 30 minutes and 35.3 seconds to claim her second Olympic gold in PyeongChang, beating Anastasiya Kuzmina of Slovakia to the second place in 31:04.7.

Already France's most decorated winter Olympian prior to the race, Fourcade brought his tally to five medals overall including three golds. It was her second gold of these Olympics.

Runner-up Marte Olsbu of Norway was in no way disappointed with her performance, despite a single costly miss early on that prevented her from fighting for the gold medal. "I just tried to stay focused and now I'm here again", said an ecstatic Dahlmeier.

"I think it was the key time of the competition, because on the third shoot the wind was really tricky and challenging, the most hard shot of today", the 29-year-old said.

Dahlmeier won three titles at the world junior championships in 2013, the same winter that she made her debut at the senior world championships and in the World Cup.

"I am very happy, because this medal is my first big medal in an individual race".
