Germany’s Felix loch is the hot favourite and has set the early pace. He leads the pack of 39 competitors with a combined time of 2:35.762.
Hot on his heels are Albert Demchenko of Russia and Italy’s Armin Zoeggeler who are 0.398 seconds and 1.041 seconds back respectively.
Another man to look out for is Tonga’s Bruno Banani, an interesting character who changed his name to that of German underwear manufacturer (His birth name is Fuahea Semi)
Lets hope there’ll be no skid marks after Banani’s luge tears down the track, eh. Ahem!
It's gold for Anastasiya Kuzmina (center), silver for Olga Vilukhina (right) and bronze for Vita Semerenko (left) in the women's 7.5km biathlon sprint. Although representing Slovakia, Kuzmina was born in Russia. I guess that makes her the first Russian born athlete to claim gold at Sochi 2012!
It's gold for Anastasiya Kuzmina and Slovakia in the 7.5 km biathlon sprint. Kuzmina successfully defends the title she won in Vancouver 4 years ago. Silver goes to Olga Vilukhina who secures Russia's second medal at the Sochi games. Bronze goes to Vita Semerenko of the Ukraine
"At the top I felt nauseous and I felt sick. I thought 'let's go through what I'm more consistent with' and oh my god it paid off."I just want to break down right now and cry. I felt so much mental and physical pressure. I'm so happy. I feel so much gratitude."
