Men's pursuit ended the competition program of another day at Biathlon World Championships 2017. French Martin Fourcade was equal to none and steered to gold. At four shooting ranges he missed only once.
Norwegians Johannes Thinges Boe and Ole Einar Bjoerndalen made him company on the podium. Belarus’ Sergey Bocharnikov did not hit three targets and became 40th in the final standings.
Three-time Olympic champion Darya Domracheva, Ole Einar Bjoerndalen’s wife, won silver at the World Championship earlier the same day. Thus a wife and a husband won medals on the same day in biathlon for the first time since 2004.
