Martin Fourcade makes Olympic biathlon history with pursuit gold

Winter Olympics 2018 Germany takes two golds on Day 1 in Pyeongchang

Laura Dahlmeier of Germany clinched her second Olympic gold, winning the Women's 10K Pursuit on 12 February.

The 24-year-old Dahlmeier became the first woman to win both the women's sprint and pursuit in a single Winter Olympics. Slovakian Anastasia Kuzmina won the silver medal, coming in 29.4 seconds behind Dahlmeier. For Dahlmeier it was the latest triumph in a season in which she has been truly dominant, winning no less than five of six golds on offer at the 2017 IBU World Championships. It was her second gold of these Olympics.

Dahlmeier was not intimidated, however, keeping her nerve as the two arrived at the same time for the third shoot and stood side by side on the range.

"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. I just tried to stay focused and now I'm here again. Dahlmeier never looked back from there, skiing off into an unassailable lead, before firing off a final salvo of five ideal shots, all but sealing her victory.

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

He said another commander, Mufti Noor Wali, has now been appointed as the group's deputy chief. The TTP has been blamed for many suicide bombings and other attacks.

Dahlmeier missed just once in her four visits to the shooting range to help her hold off Anastasiya Kuzmina, who claimed the silver medal.

"I'm very satisfied because it was a big disappointment yesterday for me, you know", said Fourcade.

The German's absence from the head of the pack did not last long, however, and Kuzmina's hopes were dashed when she missed two targets amid strong winds at the third shooting stage.

"I wanted the gold yesterday and I missed, so I was really disappointed and today I am so satisfied I left it as a champion". "I don't know if I can say a lot about how I feel".

Anais Bescond of France got the bronze in 31:04.9.
