This website talks about
Fourcade, who has won four World Cup events this season and leads the overall standings ahead of Svendsen, started the Olympics disappointingly. He finished well out of contention for a medal in the sprint event before bouncing back in impressive style two days later in the pursuit.His second gold is Fourcade's third Olympic medal; he also won silver in the mass start event four years ago in Vancouver. The Frenchman also holds five world titles.
Lesser was part of the German relay team that won bronze in the men's relay at last year's world championships. His silver is his country's first biathlon medal in Sochi. The German men failed to win any medal in Vancouver four years ago.
This website talks about how
Martin Fourcade won his second gold medal of the Sochi Winter Olympic Games when he claimed victory in the men's 20km individual biathlon on Thursday.
The Frenchman had also triumphed in the 12.5km pursuit on Monday, having started off his Games with an unexpectedly poor sixth place in the men's sprint.
Fourcade skied strongly throughout and missed one shot as he held off silver medallist Erik Lesser of Germany by just over 12 seconds, with Russia's Evgeniy Garanichev taking bronze on his 26th birthday.
