Dahlmeier of Germany wins women's biathlon 10 km pursuit at PyeongChang Olympics

Laura Dahlmeier of Germany won the women's biathlon 10 km pursuit of 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games at the Alpensia Biathlon Center here on Monday.

Kuzmina produced the race of her life, but her German rival's accurate shooting and power in the finishing stages were just too much. She's won gold in each of the last two world championships and she's the first reigning world champion to win the Olympic pursuit.

"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 felt really, really exhausted before the race and also during the race in the first laps.

With the racers starting based on where they finished in the sprint, Dahlmeier started the pursuit with a 24-second advantage.

The errors from the Slovakian opened the door for Dahlmeier to seize control and she duly obliged, coasting to another impressive victory. However, Dahlmeier kept her nerve as the two arrived at the same time for the third shoot, hitting all five targets, while Kuzmina had two misses - ending her hopes of the gold medal.

Dahlmeier made no mistake in the fourth and final shoot, as a flawless round allowed her to finish well ahead of the pack.
