Laura Dahlmeier has won the pursuit race at the 2018 Olympics, which is her second medal after the February 10 sprint gold.

Anastasia Kuzmina took second place and was the fastest biathlete during the race. In third was French biathlete Anaïs Bescond.

Nadezhda Skardino showed 22th fastest speed and became the best Belarusian athlete of the race.

Finnish Kaisa Mäkäräinen was 22nd place, which is a disappointment for her fans.

Domracheva, three-time Olympic champion of Sochi 2014, was predicted to be in the top three, but slow and sloppy shooting in the standing position deprived her of the medal. Nadezhda Krivko was 17th (2 penalties), while Nadezhda Pisareva was only 44th (3 penalties).

Harsh weather conditions in South Korea continue to disturb athletes and fans. One penalty seems to be quite a good result in such wind and low temperatures.

Domracheva is living and training with her husband Norwegian Ole Einar Bjørndalen, with whom she has a baby daughter.
